2000 Château Lafite Rothschild

Community Tasting Note


95 Points

Thursday, November 14, 2019 - HDH annual Bordeaux tasting: Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Chicago, IL): I think this is a little more resolved and showing better than a bottle a few years ago at a similar Bordeaux tasting. Like the 2010, this is a massively-scaled wine with plenty of graphite aromas on the nose. The palate is slightly soft but well on its way to resolution. Very complex and layered, with fruit, minerality, acidity, and secondary notes of Bordeaux leather and pencil shavings all in excellent interplay. Among my favourites tonight -- I love how the 2000 vintage has evolved and is drinking, and this bottle is another case in point.
