Winemaker's Notes

Lafite Reserve Speciale is a deep purple with good intensity. Powerful and seductive, with aromas of ripe fruit (blackcurrants, Morello cherries) and hints of candied violet and licorice. The palate is generous, rich and full-flavored, long finish with hints of pepper and liquorice.

Bordeaux is not just about the expensive "classifies!" The 2011 Domaines Baron Rothschild Reserve Speciale just plain delivers. Ripe fruit with a shading of leather in the nose and well textured on the palate. Drinks really well now.

Very nice for the price. The aroma is fantastic. Flavor is also good, esp. after some time in the air. The finish is quite long. Would of like to have a little more bodied, but at $16 would buy again.
