Pauillac - Medoc,
dry red blend. One of the 1st Growth’s and very popular
world-wide, you can’t go wrong investment wise, with
this type. But beware price and choosing the best of a
good bunch. Harvest can be cut in half for different
years, and this will mean rarer wines to get hold of.
See year 2000.
Wines Year Description:
points by Robert Parker this puts the 2008 vintage in
the same class as the 2000 (100pts - £14,300) and
eclipses the 2005 vintage (96pts - £8000). Having been
tasted out of the barrel so highly, it has all the time
to age and mature into a truly outstanding wine. With
huge interest coming from the Asian market, the price
has grown over 150% since release and it continues to
grow month on month. With the Chinese preferring to buy
Lafite when physical, this wine hasn’t even experienced
the best of its growth and with the ‘lucky number 8’ in
the vintage, this is a wine that could hit stratospheric
levels in the next 5-10 years. Lafite Rothschild has
already proven itself as the ‘best-performing asset’ of
the last decade. The 1982 vintage made returns of over
870%, whilst the 2000 vintage has also grown from £2,200
on release to a hefty £14,000 by January 2010. This is
not only a must-have for the Fine Wine investor, but it
is an asset that all investors should seriously consider
having in their portfolios. When the opportunity comes
to purchase a truly great Lafite Rothschild on the up,
it must be taken.
