Château Lafitte Grand Vin de Bordeaux
The name of Lafitte can be traced back to the 18th century when, on 12 February 1763, a well-known wine
merchant in the local region of Camblanes, Raymond Lafitte, bought and named the estate. The eponymous
wine – a Premières Côtes de Bordeaux – has been produced, vinified and bottled at the property in
Camblanes et Meynac by a succession of owners and most recently the company Château Lafitte. The name
is cited in the second edition of theLe Féret wine guide, clearly showing the excellent reputation the Bordeaux
had already acquired by 1868.
In 1970, the property was bought by Juliette Mengin, who was won over by the estate’s strategic location as
well as its magnificent view overlooking the Garonne valley. The shrewd and dynamic businesswoman set about
organising an intense planting campaign and the ambitious building of a new fermentation room to hold the future
harvests, thus playing a crucial role in the growth of Château Lafitte.
Her son Max Mengin took the helm in 1991, bringing new impetus to Château Lafitte’s commercial operations
thanks to his international experience.After completing his oenology studies, Philippe Mengin, Juliette’s grandson,
travelled the world for many years to learn the wine export business. Philippe introduced new, more modern
practices, which contributed to making significant improvements to the quality of the wine and opened up
considerably more channels for exporting the wine from the family-owned estate.
Today, around 95% of the wine is exported and has garnered an excellent reputation around the world.
LOCATION AND TERROIR
Château Lafitte is superbly situated, at the fringes of the city of Bordeaux where it boasts an unrestricted view
over the Garonne valley.The vineyard of 50 hectares and benefits from a magnificent terroir composed of: 40% round,
flat pebble, 30% clay-limestone, and 30% fine gravel Château Lafitte wine owes its typicity in part to the
choice of grapes in the blend:
50% Merlot (for roundness and fruit),
30% Cabernet Sauvignon (structure and elegance),
20% Cabernet Franc (finesse and bouquet).
THE WINEMAKING PROCESS
Through the seasons, the vineyard at Château Lafitte is tended and watched over with the utmost care and
attention. When the berries reach the peak of ripeness, they are harvested, destemmed and treaded before
the winemaking process begins:
Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats
Maceration for 4-5 weeks
The wines are aged for between 12 and 24 months, before being bottled on the Château Lafitte estate, where
300,000 bottles are produced every year.
Château Lafitte 2016:
The nose reveals great complexity and delicacy.
Marked by notes of ripe fruits, then evolving into spicy and roasted notes.
The attack is fleshy and smooth on the palate, the mid-palate is full-bodied but well-balanced. A good texture
accompanied by a fine liveliness, giving this wine a real ability to age.
The finish is smooth and juicy, which enables it to be appreciated relatively quickly
