Lo Château Lafite-Rothschild 2012 presenta una bella struttura, molto precisa, con tannini maturi combinati ad una bella freschezza e a un'accurata acidità. L'impressione generale percepita in bocca palesa la grandezza di questo vino frutto di uno straordinario territorio.
Parker : 91 / 100 J. Suckling : 95 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2012 Lafite Rothschild, representing only 38% of their total production, is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance mostly Merlot. It is a very stylish, elegant, yet concentrated Lafite Rothschild with an opaque ruby/purple color, soft well-integrated tannins, nice integrated oak, acidity and alcohol. Lafites's 2012 reveals good, opaque, ruby/purple color and plenty of lead pencil and blackcurrant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied and should hit its prime 2020-2035.
