Bordeaux En Primeur 2022 Tasting Notes

Left Bank

Lafite Rothschild 2022

Lafite derives its name for an old French word meaning little hill or mount. Driving up to Lafite it is clear where the best plots are located. The hill provides drainage, and exposure to the sun. Next to this famous hill we find the chateau. I tasted the Lafite Rothschild 2022 in the professional tasting room with Saskia de Rothschild, the current CEO of this First Growth and Eric Kohler, the Technical Director at Lafite.
