Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 100 Points: “One of the greatest wines produced in Bordeaux this year is the 2019 Lafite Rothschild, an impeccably balanced classic of immense charm and grace. Wafting from the glass with arresting aromas of cassis, blackberries and cherries mingled with violets, cigar box and warm spices, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, its velvety attack segueing into a layered, concentrated mid-palate framed by exquisitely powdery tannins and ripe acids, and concluding with a long, perfumed finish. This rivals the 2010 and 2016 as the greatest Lafite of the decade, and of those three vintages, it's clearly the most sensual and demonstrative out of the gates. The blend contains fully 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and attained a modest 13.4% alcohol.”

James Suckling 100 Points: “So much sweet tobacco, Spanish cedar, dried flowers, dark mushrooms and roses. Really aromatic. This is so polished and very powerful, yet ethereal and refined at the same time. The finish goes on for minutes. Tight and harmonious. You want to drink it! So balanced, yet it will age beautifully. It will be this good forever. 94% cabernet sauvignon, 5% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Better after 2031.”

Falstaff 100 Points: “Dark ruby garnet, opaque core, violet reflections, discreet rim brightening. A hint of nougat, ripe cherries, a touch of cassis, fresh orange zest, a touch of precious wood, very inviting. Complex, substantial, ripe black cherry fruit, pleasant fruit sweetness, silky tannins, freshly structured, mineral, a hint of chocolate, already in this early state immensely seductive, great length, secure ageing potential, a wine of enormous charm and great finesse.”
