Lafite Rothschild is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful brands in the wine world. Heralded as the king among kings, this First Growth enjoys a global reputation for quality and prestige and was even purchased by Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States. With its vinegrowing history going back centuries, the property passed from the Segur family into the Rothschild family before coming into the hands of Baron James d’Rothschild in 1868. The wine itself is hugely impressive in every respect. It is one of the longest lived still wines, hugely complex when mature and massively sought after; arguably their special ‘8’ labelled bottling of the 2008 vintage was one of the key moments in the explosion of the fine wine scene in Asia and the property continues to enjoy this legacy today. However exceptional work by the current management has focused on making sure Lafite remains a wine for all collectors and lovers of great wine. Having taken over winemaking duties from Charles Chevalier, Saskia de Rothschild, alongside General Manager Jean-Guillaume Prats, make a formidable team and Lafite has a very confident future still ahead of it.
