Château Lafite-Rothschild

If the first reference to Lafite dates back to 1234, the name is truly associated with the Bordeaux vineyard in the 18th century with the matrimonial association of two fiefs: Lafite and Latour. It was the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur, nicknamed “Prince of the Vines” by Louis XV, who launched the estate, the official supplier of the “King’s wine”. The Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1855 established an official classification of Bordeaux wines, still in force today, and gave Château Lafite the rating of “leader among wines”. On the occasion of a public sale in 1868, Château Lafite became the property of the Rothschild family, which combined its name with the estate. The prosperity of the label has passed through time with confidence thanks to the talented takeovers of the generations that succeeded Baron James, maintaining a tradition of excellence.

Baron Eric de Rothschild, the fifth generation of the Rothschild family, is the heir to this quest for excellence that drives Château Lafite and the DBR Group (Lafite), alongside him is Christophe Salin, Managing Director of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). This fruitful collaboration has raised Lafite-Rothschild production to the rank of internationally coveted great wines.
