The Wines of Bordeaux give tone to the stomach, while leaving the mouth fresh and the head clear.  More than one invalid abandoned by the doctors has been seen to drink the good old wine of Bordeaux and return to health.

I have been preaching the health benefits of wine for a long time and what better way to get healthy that a vertical selection of Chateau Latife Rothschild. 

One of the reasons that I get out of bed in the morning is to drink wines like Chateau Lafite Rothschild. Lafite is a symbol of the best that Bordeaux has to offer, the pinnacle of quality and the epitome of what a Bordeaux from Pauillac is and standard bearer should be.  

Over the years we have had many vertical tastings with this great first growth and the oldest Lafite we have put on the table was the 1893.  Although the 1893 was not the wine of the night that evening it showed up to the party but we had other amazing vintages that night like 1982, 1990, 2003 and more.  We always have 10+ vintages at our "Collectors Series" tastings and what better time to open that Chateau Lafite Rothschild you have been saving than right now!

Our "Collector Series" tasting event is where we ask you, our wine drinking people, to come up with some wine from your wine collection to add to the party. If you don’t have any Chateau Lafite Rothschild in your cellar don’t worry we have an incredible collection of Chateau Lafite Rothschild to choose from and I have included everything that we have in the store from Chateau Lafite Rothschild on this e-mail offering.

 

Chateau Lafite Rothschild has become the hottest Bordeaux on the market today because of the demand for this product in the Asian market. But this "first" of first growths has been in the limelight for several hundred years now which is one of the reasons that they have a world-wide demand for this classic claret.

 

There are also 13 different listings for Chateau Lafite Rothschild in our inventory going back to 1959!  Check out the offering after the list of tasting wines kicking off our first “Once In a Lifetime” tasting of Social Distancing where we have the entire Wine Bar to ourselves with only 12 spaces available for this “Collectors Series” wine tasting event.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild Collectors Tasting at Wine Watch

Thursday, May 21st

7:30pm

 

Let me explain further- this is a two-part event:

The first part of the evening begins at 7:30pm, this is where we will be tasting through a vertical selection of 10+ vintages of Chateau Lafite Rothschild. The price of admission is one bottle of Chateau Lafite Rothschild from your cellar, but here is the catch- we only need 1 bottle of each vintage, so the longer you wait to respond the harder it will be to get a seat as you will have to go further back in time because the youngest vintages will be filled up by the first collectors who respond.

If you do not have a bottle of Chateau Lafite Rothschild in the cellar that is a different vintage than those below we may be able to help.  We just happen to have one of the largest collections of Chateau Lafite Rothschild in Florida so I have included a list of all the Chateau Lafite Rothschild that we have in the store below.

If you would like to attend the vertical tasting just respond to this email with the vintage of Chateau Lafite Rothschild that you would like to trade for your seat.

**There are only 12 spaces available for this event.

Here are the vintages that we have already:
