Château Lafite Rothschild 2014 – Pauillac, 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, pure, round, relatively gourmand and offers richness (precisely well-balanced). It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, cassis and slight hints of violet, crushed strawberry combined with discreet hints of licorice, zan, toasted oak, hints of spices as well as a very discreet hint of pepper (in the background) and hints of flower (in the background). The palate is fruity, fine, mineral, nicely elegant, pure, quite straight and offers an iodine / saline mineral frame and a small tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cassis and slight notes of licorice, fresh strawberry combined with slight hints of raspberry, zan, spices, a few delicate hints of toasted oak as well as a very discreet hint of clove and a very discreet hint of caramelization. Tannins are fine, elegant and nicely built. Good length and beautiful persistence. The persistence is suave, gourmande and offers notes of iodine / gravel minerality.
