Owned by the Rothschild family since the 19th century, Château Lafite Rothschild was one of four châteaux of Bordeaux originally awarded Premier Grand Cru in the 1855 Classification with their wines noted as “the most superb in all of Médoc”. It is one of the most renowned wine properties in the Médoc, if not the world, and is also one of the largest Médoc estates. Found in the Pauillac appellation, their wines have a distinguished perfumed elegance and finesse. Please join us at our Bordeaux Dinner to experience these exquisite wines with us.
