A remarkable red wine from the Médoc, Bordeaux appellation, the Réserve Spéciale 2016 from Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is subtle on the nose, and has a well-structured and elegant palate.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Deep crimson in color, the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Réserve Spéciale 2016 has an ABV of 13.5%. It’s made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot grape varietals that are destemmed and crushed, then transferred to thermoregulated stainless steel tanks to be fermented.

Subtle and refined on the nose, it has aroma notes of Morello cherries and licorice. It’s well-structured and elegant, with dense tannins, earthy, oaky notes, and hints of licorice.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

A wonderfully bold wine, the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Réserve Spéciale 2016 pair well with hearty fare, like steak, lamb chops, or roasted pork.

A FORTUITOUS PURCHASE

The Baron James de Rothschild purchased Château Lafite on the 8th of August in 1868. It had been transferred between hands throughout centuries before landing on the lap of the head of the French branch of the Rothschild family. Unfortunately, he was barely able to enjoy Château Lafite as he died a mere three months after the purchase. The estate went to his sons—Alphonse, Edmond, and Gustave.

The wine vintage produced that year (1868) went on to rack the highest value and price of any wine in that vintage year. That record held for a whole century, only being surpassed at the end of the 20th century. The Château is still in the hands of the Rothschilds to this day, and continues to produce exceptional wines.
