2016 Château Lafite Rothschild

2016  Château Lafite Rothschild

在著名酒評家James Suckling發布的2016年份期酒評分中,Château Lafite Rothschild 獲得了100分的滿分好評。這款酒是Cabernet Sauvignon和Merlot的混釀,性格強烈的Cabernet Sauvignon和陰柔絕美的Merlot,共同構成了酒款的絕佳表現力。Cabernet Sauvignon本身充沛的單寧、酸度以及濃厚的果香味,加上Merlot使口感更為順滑,餘味悠遠綿長,成就了品質絕佳的頂級佳釀。
Cabernet Sauvignon: 92%
Merlot: 8%
Neal Martin (WA): 96-98
The 2016 Lafite-Rothschild is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot picked from 23 September until 12 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon (and unused Petit Verdot). It has 13.3% alcohol, a pH of 3.65 and the IPT of 74. Matured in 100% new oak, it has a fresh and vibrant bouquet whilst retaining the classicism of this First Growth. This is more subtle than Mouton-Rothschild or Latour, which is always the case at en primeur, yet there is a brooding intensity that draws you in as it unveils some gorgeous blackberry and graphite aromas. The palate is just superb. This has more density, more vigor, more depth and you could even argue more ambition than the 2015 Lafite-Rothschild showed last year. It gently grips the mouth with unerring focus and symmetry, just a touch of spiciness developing with a long, saline finish that lingers two minutes after the wine has departed. Lafite-Rothschild always develops and meliorates in barrel during its élevage and I suspect this will ultimately turn out to be a regal Lafite-Rothschild.

Even stronger and more toned than the excellent 2015, this Lafite shows incredible power yet also finesse. Full-bodied, superfine and chewy wine. Muscular yet agile. Goes on for minutes. Stunning. Perhaps the greatest Lafite since the legendary 1959? Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com

Wine Enthusiast (WE): 98-100

Potentially an 100 point wine, this is a dense, serious and impressive selection. There is a classical structure to this wine, with dark tannins and acidity working in tandem. At the same time, the wine has immense, opulent fruits that are a characteristic of this vintage. It's a wine that will last for many generations. Apr 2017, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
