Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Bordeaux Controlee Reserve Speciale 2011 750ml

Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Bordeaux Controlee Reserve Speciale

The color is an intense purple. Expressive and voluptuous on the nose with mingling aromas of dark berries (blackberries, blackcurrants), dried fruit (figs, almonds), spices and liquorice. The palate is full-bodied and flavorful, with silky, well blended tannins, powerful aromas and a fresh, spicy finish. A rich, full and nice wine. The Réserve Spéciale Bordeaux Rouge and the Réserve Bordeaux Blanc are made from a selection of wines from the best terroirs in Bordeaux. Tastings are carried out all over the Bordeaux region to find the most successful wines of the year with a view to creating blends in the tradition of the finest Bordeaux that favour balance over woodiness. The wines selected are mainly from the Entre-Deux-Mers.

The wine has a very deep, almost black color. The stylish and complex nose displays aromas of bilberry, blackcurrant and blond tobacco that mingle with subtle cedarwood and spice notes. The same refinement and density are to be found on the palate with patrician, well-rounded tannins, revealing remarkable structure and balance right through to the long and opulent finish

As owners of Chateau Lafite Rothschild for five generations, the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) are determined to ensure their role as stewards of worldrenowned uality. For many years, the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have complemented their fine wines from their prestigious vineyards with a line of wines great for casual enjoyment, known as their ””Reserves””. To share in the spirit of ””Reserve des Barons””, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) decided to offer different appellations to customers and friends. These include the Reserve Pauillac, Reserve Medoc, Bordeaux Rouge and Bordeaux Blanc.

I ordered the white not red. Decided to try it anyway. Thin, NOT complex,
difficult to determine flavors. No finish.
