The Wine Advocate

"The Grand Vin is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot. The latter was apparently difficult to assimilate with the Cabernet, gradually adding 1% at a time and finally, electing 2% as the optimal amount. As usual, I spent 10+ minutes with my sample, as it is never as immediate as say, Latour or Château Margaux. It has an elegant bouquet with a fine violet scent that became more accentuated with time. There is plenty of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a touch of pencil shavings that becomes more pronounced with aeration. The palate is a little austere because of the dominance of the Cabernet Sauvignon, although that 2% Merlot does take the edge off the finish, rounding out any edges. The aftertaste has that attractive saline tincture, but here a little spicier and longer than its peers. This is a traditional Pauillac; a success for the vintage and a wine that I think will improve in bottle rather than in barrel. A steadfast Lafite. Tasted April 2014."

"Lafite Rothschild – Tobacco, cassis and gravel open the perfume, transitioning to a medium-bodied, polished and fresh—but slightly short and light, cherry finish. From a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, the blend is the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend since 1994. Before that, 1961 was produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. From yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare, the wine represents 33% of the harvest."

"94–96. Barrel Sample. This wine has firm tannins, lending it a dark, serious character. It is hugely concentrated, full of black fruit and sweet wood flavors. Along with the weight, it does have a more elegant side, showing potential balance, freshness and a long finish."

Wine Spectator

"This is exceptionally high in cabernet sauvignon at 98% with only 2% merlot. It shows aromas of black currants and flowers and cigar box. It's full body, with fine tannins and a long finish. It's subtle and polished."

"17,5-18/20 Punkte [93-95/100] Grand nez de cèdre, ensemble très vigoureux et corsé, grand support tannique, encore un peu de raideur initiale liée à la proportion énorme de cabernet-sauvignon (98 %)."

"The 2013 Lafite hits the palate with a burst of dark red and purple fruit. White flowers, mint and licorice all develop in the glass, adding layers of depth and complexity. Smoke, tar, cinnamon, graphite, dried violets and plums are all layered into the resonant finish. The style is up-front, textured and generous, with no hard edges and plenty of near to medium-term potential. The blend is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot. Tasted twice."

Yves Beck

"Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarter Wasserrand. Verhalten, feine schwarze Beerenfrucht, ein Hauch von Nougat, mit Nuancen von Herzkirschen unterlegt, verhaltenes Bukett. Saftig, seidig und elegant, frische Säurestruktur, dezenter Holzeinsatz, charmant und mit einer feinen Extraktsüße ausgestattet, rotbeerig-zitroniger Nachhall, mineralischer Rückgeschmack."

"There is a sweetness on the nose of the Lafite that is not evident in the Carruades. This has some of the eegance of Margaux and some of the mouthfeel of Mouton, but without the fleshy opulence. Less fun that Mouton, more elegant, the tannins are very well worked. The blend here is 98% cabernet sauvignon with 2% merlot (so another year with no cabernet franc in the first wine at Lafite). An attractive twist of tobacco leaf and cigar smoke on the finish gives definition, and the tannins are apparent, even if the structure is lighter than in many vintages. This is a classic Lafite, and will give great pleasure."
93-94Punkte. Highly recommended. Drink 2021-2038. Quelle:
