Chateau Lafite, Pauillac
(4.7/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Sip some of the most famous wines in Bordeaux at Chateau Lafite, a winery and estate owned by the Rothschild family since the 19th century. The winery is renowned for producing some of the world's most expensive red wines--mainly Cabernet Sauvignons and a few Merlots. The estate offers a genuine and sincere atmosphere, a welcome change from its often pretentious and gimmicky counterparts. In fact, you could say they have nothing to sell: the wine can't even be bought on site. The vintages are aged for 18 to 20 months, yielding approximately 16,000 cases annually. Tour the picturesque estate with a knowledgeable guide at the helm; learn about the winemaking process and history of the house, and, of course, get some expert advice during the wine tasting. Advance online reservation is required, so book early to avoid missing out. Make Chateau Lafite a part of your Pauillac vacation plans using our Pauillac itinerary builder.

  • The visit must be prepared long so that you can get a Thermin. There are all different techniques, therefore you need to get into in the Château.

  • If you are a wine lover and planning to take a trip to Bordeaux, you should try to email them ahead of time for a private tour. Please do not expect to see souvenirs or shops, this over 200 years old ...  more »
  • A very nice visit with backdrop of a beautiful castle with a very neat garden. For wine lovers, a visit to the cellars is nothing more than a promise to dream with the history of the Castle, for the look as lavish and historic coins and for the taste buds a tasting that will brighten your day. This visit does not necessarily require to enjoy wine, my wife doesn't drink not a taste of alcohol, it came out thrilled by the history and architecture of the cellars.

  • Superb from the outside, wish I could have done the tour and tested the wines!
  • Hello, I worked several years for the field as a harvester and I only keep good memories of each of my seasons spent in the teams of this wonderful Castle. Staff framing one might think or even staid Lout is also generous that wine is good! An pti particular nod to Michel and Sandrine who juggle everything also clothing between rigour and professionalism that kindness and relaxation! Strongly my return to the Castle, which incidentally is also my holiday stay!
