Top 10 highest rated wines on Vivino: 10-6

10: Château Lafite Rothschild 2009 – £1,265 / 279 ratings

The 2009 vintage of the revered Bordeaux first growth charmed Vivino users with its notes of “blackberry, prune, graphite, mint, plums and cedar”.

They also praised its “exceptional precision and notes of tobacco, tea and sweet earth” on the palate. “Long and classy, with perfect balance with ripe soft tannins and a lingering finish, it isn’t sinful to drink it now,” enthused one user.

With owner Baron Eric de Rothschild stepping aside to make way for his daughter Saskia to run the estate, we wonder if it will be business as usual at Lafite or whether there might be changes in store with young blood at the helm.
