THE WINE

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe 'Château Lafite Rothschild' is the most expensive wine in the world. First among the first in the history of crus classés in 1855 in the Bordeaux area, lord of the gravel soil of Pauillac. It was born in France in Pauillac in 1670 and at the beginning of the 1700s it was one of the most exclusive fine wines to be served at the court of the French king Louis XV, so much so that it deserves the nickname of "le vin du Roi", the wine of the King attributed to it by Cardinal Richelieu.

THE COMPANY

Owner of Château Lafite Rothschild for five generations, the Rothschild family has been associated with the vineyards of Bordeaux since 1868 and today owns Châteaux Lafite Rothschild, Duhart Milon, L’Evangile and Rieussec.

In addition to the wines produced from their prestigious vineyards, the Barons de Rothschild have for many years created a range of more accessible wines for everyday drinking. Initially created at the request of family and friends, these were known as the “Réserves des Barons”. In a continuation of this tradition, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) decided to produce the Réserves in four major Bordeaux appellations:: Bordeaux, Bordeaux Blanc, Médoc and Pauillac. In creating the Collection, DBR (Lafite)’s objective is to offer classic Bordeaux wines with immediate charm.
