Chateau Lafite, Pauillac

4.6
#7 of 8 in Things to do in Pauillac
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. A visit to Chateau Lafite represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pauillac online tour itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • The book three months ago. Visit the we-one set only. Chateau of showed us (in English). Recently, like use big barrel wood in addition to stainless steel barrels for fermentation. During the Dungeon I turned, there are more than 2,000 wooden barrel sight to see. Along the way, there are stairs, here's "stairway to heaven", and Office. Right on the money. That aroma is unforgettable. My favorite tasting's, 2009 of Château Lafite Rothschild and what. It would be to tell the innkeepers still is young, but it takes almost 20 years, will be aged by an indescribable taste. This is really worth a visit and. What is a really good personality of the innkeepers.

  • Mythical property which we discover the vineyards, the winery... and finally the famous chai "Bofill" where we taste in the half-light the local nectar; no fluff... divine!... no shop to tourists either.
