2003 Lafite Rothschild: A Modern-Day Masterpiece and Investment

“A modern-day version of the 1959 Lafite” –If that doesn’t sell you on this wine, we don’t know what will.


This 2003 Lafite Rothschild is a must have for your collection based on that statement alone. The 1959 Lafite is, no question asked, the most legendary Lafite ever produced. GRW Owner, Jeremy, said that the ’59 Lafite was the single best bottle of Bordeaux that he’s ever experienced, and that it sits comfortably in his top 10 wines ever. The fact that the 2003 Lafite has been compared to this legendary masterpiece on more than one occasion says quite a bit. 


We JUST sold bottles of 1959 Lafite a few weeks ago for $4650/bottle. We offering these 2003’s, in original wood case, for under $1k a bottle. This is a win win situation for you – either a phenomenal drinking experience or a no brainer investment. It’s blatantly clear to see where these wines have the potential to go from a price perspective.


We are the only retailer in the country with 12pks in stock and ready to go – Don’t play the Pre-Arrival waiting game with retailers that don’t even have the bottles. Most of them don’t order the wines until they have a confirmed order from their client. We purchased our cases from a client that bought them on release – these can be in your hands before Christmas!


Our 3.0L is the lowest price in the country – Next best is $4,450 and then up to $6,763 from there! 




2003 Lafite

"The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades (1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of one of this estate’s great classics, the 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white chocolate, cocoa and cassis. Fat, rich, opulent and full-bodied with low acidity and stunning seductiveness and complexity, this noble wine possesses a bountiful, generous, heady style. It is just coming into its plateau of maturity where it should hold for 20-25 years. This is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage – make no mistake about that." 

100, Robert Parker
