Interview with Michel Negrier of Lafite Rothschild

Michel Negrier joins me to taste some wines outside the sphere of Lafite Rothschild's beloved Bordeaux offerings. Though the name Lafite Rothschild conjures images of their iconic château, the legendary vintners are creating superb wines in South America as well. They've taken their mastery of the art of blending - what M. Negrier refers to as their "excellence on the cuvée level" - and applied it to this distinctly different terroir. Of course, he says, "the quality of the soil and fruit was already there."

Looking back through the archives, we were reminded that we featured a 1988 Cabernet Sauvignon from Los Vascos way back in July of 1991. That was Lafite Rothschild's first vintage at the winery!
