Chateau Lafite Rothschild will perfectly complement red meat and game dishes, whether it be beef medallions, venison with berry sauce or lamb in herbs. Foie gras, smoked meats, stuffed poultry, Parma ham and mature blue cheeses are also good as a gastronomic pair. Before tasting old Château Lafite Rothschild wines, it is necessary to decant them in 1-2 hours, but young wines take much longer to open up, therefore, depending on the vintage, it is better to decant them in 2-24 hours.

The excellent 2003 Château Lafite Rothschild has a rich, powerful flavor with an extremely high tannin content and remarkable length. The surprisingly soft and sweet taste captivates with juicy fruity tones of ripe cherries, plums and red currants, to which are added spicy notes of coffee, tobacco and dark chocolate, as well as fresh hints of cedar and minerals.
