The Story

In time, the vines planted in 1985 are now providing a choice in plot selection. Conventional tillage and handpicking are jealously maintained. More rigorous each year, the wine is surrounded resources and the most modern aids. Penetrates the grapes in a vat which allows perfect control of fermentations. Livestock cellars are fully air conditioned.
Efforts now focus on the vine. The experience gained during 30 years of practice brings a mastery of soils and climatic constraints.

Vintage 1899

Bordeaux: Harvest began on September 24th, and ushered in an excellent vintage, with wines of very high quality. Among the most exceptional wines of the year were Ausone, Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Haut-Brion, all of which aged well into the next century, a few still going strong today. The first Bordeaux trams began running this year, and King Oscar II of Sweden and Norway visited the Médoc, signing the guest book at Château Lafite Rothschild.
