Description

The 2014 Lafite-Rothschild, tasted with head winemaker Eric Kohler, has retained that very opulent and outgoing bouquet that dare I say actually reminded me of Mouton-Rothschild. There are layers of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, still that hint of juniper berry, certainly a more extrovert Lafite-Rothschild compared to recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, very focused and quite linear, again with plenty of black fruit laced with cedar and tobacco. It begins to clam up towards the saline finish, suggesting that it will need several years in bottle, but I still have high expectations for this First Growth once afforded several years in bottle.

Tasting note

2014年的拉菲酒莊展現了波亞克的宏偉風格。這款佳釀散發著複雜的香氣,讓人聯想到古巴雪茄外葉、香料、雪松和濕潤森林的大地氣息。口感上,黑莓和黑加侖子的強烈味道與拉菲酒莊特有的紫羅蘭和雪松香氣相得益彰。絲滑的單寧和清新、和諧的結構使這款酒既有力量又不失優雅。尾韻特別具有活力、長度和純淨感。儘管年輕時就能品嚐,但這款酒承諾隨著時間的推移而美妙演變,稍加耐心即可達到巔峰。建議醒酒兩小時,以充分體驗其深度和複雜性。搭配烤羊排或威靈頓牛排等濃郁菜餚,將使用餐體驗更上一層樓。

The 2014 Chateau Lafite Rothschild is a testament to the grandeur of Pauillac. This vintage exudes a complex bouquet of dark fruits, reminiscent of Cuban cigar wrapper, spice, cedar, and the earthiness of a wet forest. The palate reveals a symphony of blackberries and blackcurrants, accented by violet and cedar notes characteristic of Lafite's esteemed profile. With silky tannins and a fresh, harmonious structure, the wine is both powerful and elegant. The finish is notable for its energy, length, and purity. While approachable in its youth, this wine promises to evolve beautifully, reaching its peak with a bit of patience. Decanting for two hours is recommended to fully appreciate its depth and complexity. Pair this exquisite wine with robust dishes such as grilled lamb chops or Beef Wellington to elevate the dining experience.
