Product Overview

97 Points - Vinous: "The 2001 Lafite-Rothschild is a damn impressive follow-up to the 2000. It has a healthy garnet core, showing little sign of maturity. The bouquet offers blackberry, melted tar, cedar and a pinch of dried herbs that might not deliver the clarity of the finest Lafites, yet just seems to meliorate with aeration, offering complementary scents of iris with time. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple tannins, and a mélange of red and black fruit. I notice a touch of glycerin towards the second half, almost candied towards the precise finish of wild strawberry, graphite and a hint of black truffle. I admire the cohesiveness and crescendo of the 2001 Lafite-Rothschild. It should give drinkers 20 or 30 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted at the Lafite-Rothschild 150th anniversary dinner at the estate."

96 Points - Wine Spectator (#4 Top 100 of 2004, Collectible): "Stick your nose in this and it says something: "I am special." Deep and generous aromas of blackberries, fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a superlong finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater."

94 Points - Wine Advocate:
"The 2001 Lafite Rothschild's deep, saturated plum/purple color is accompanied by lead pencil liqueur-like notes intermixed with sweet red and black currants, plums, and cedar. This blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5% Merlot is a classic example of Lafite. Extremely elegant, medium-bodied, with intense concentration, richness, and sweet tannin, it appears to be on a rapid evolutionary track, at least in comparison to recent Lafite vintages that have been far more backward and powerful."
