Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2009 It is a Wine From the PDO Pauillac Made With Cabernet Sauvignon And Merlot Grapes By Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Wineries.
Chateau Lafite Rothschild It occupies the most beautiful hills of Pauillac, of which the poet Ausonius already spoke in 325 in his Epistles to Théon. In the first half of the seventeenth century, it was bought by the Bordeaux parliamentarian Saubat de Pommiers and later came into the hands of the Ségur family, lords of Lafite. Nicolas-Alexandre Ségur, who is known as the Prince of the Vineyards, became the owner of Lafite, Latour, Mouton and Calon.
When Richelieu was appointed Governor of Guyenne, ancient Aquitaine in 1755, he consulted a doctor in Bordeaux who prescribed Château Lafite wine as the best and most pleasant tonic. When he returns to Paris, Louis XV tells him that he seems to be 25 years younger and Richelieu replies that he has found in Lafite's wine something comparable to the ambrosia of the Olympian gods. He gives some bottles to the king who, enthusiastic about them, makes it his favorite wine and soon that of the whole court.
