James and Eric Kohler, the technical director of Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Chateau Duhart Milon, discuss what went into the making of the 2019 Lafite Rothschild and other Domaines Barons de Rothschild releases, and how Eric feels about the vintage now that it's in bottle.
"The fruit was delicious before the harvest, [as was] the juice before the vinification," Eric said. "If you remember en primeur, this vintage always had a great harmony, a perfect balance of freshness, an incredible concentration but no aggressivity at all... This vintage will be very easy to drink."
Watch them taste the Chateau L'Evangile Pomerol 2019, the Chateau Duhart-Milon Rothschild Pauillac 2019, the Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2019 and Carruades de Lafite Rotshchild 2019.
Have a listen to their conversation about vintage, viticulture and winemaking, which lasts until the 07:22 mark, when James and Eric begin tasting.
