2011 Château Lafite Monteil Bordeaux Superior


Château Lafite Monteil owes its name to the Lafite Vineyard which dates back to 1812. The property was acquired by Edouard Eiffel in 1894 (son of the architect who designed the Eiffel Tower) and now covers 111 acres of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in clay and gravel soils. This Bordeaux Supérieur blend is bright garnet in color with a nose full of red and black fruits, toasted spice and cocoa. A powerful palate finishes clean and perfectly in balance.

ABV % = 13


Bordeaux is home to some of the greatest wines in the world, and also to some of the most accessible wines.

The left bank of Bordeaux is primarily gravel soil, with varying degrees of limestone, clay, and sand. North of the city of Bordeaux is the region known as the Médoc. The Médoc is famous for the villages, from north to south, called St. Estephe, Pauillac, St. Julien, and Margaux. The Médoc used to be the bottom of the river, until the Dutch came and drained the area to make way for the estuary to improve the shipping routes. Little did they know they would clear the path for amazing wines, thanks to the remaining soil. The Médoc is also home to all of the Bordeaux chateaux which were classified in 1855, save for one. The wines here are red only, and are made from primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
