The En Primeur period is one of the most important period of the year for our Bordeaux Chateaux.
The 2014 vintage, harvested in September has been presented during the "Primeurs Week", at the beginning of April, to Bordeaux Negociants and wine journalists.
Charles Chevallier, Director of Bordeaux Properties of the Group, shares his first impressions on the 2014 vintage.
In 2014, the Colbert Committee celebrated its 60th anniversary. For the occasion, the members of the Committee set themselves the objective of imagining an optimistic vision of the world in 2074.
A new project was born: "Dreaming 2074, or a utopia created by French luxury." Following an initial online campaign presenting the neologisms and the publication of an ebook, the Committee has now taken the project a step further, with a translation of the idea into images.
After the first experimental harvest in 2013, our teams have continued to learn on the ground. The 2013-2014 winter in particular gave the opportunity to teach and give a reminder of the importance of preparation of the vine through meticulous pruning.
Château Lafite Rothschild and classical music have always been an inevitable combination.
Each year since its construction by the architect Ricardo Bofill, the cellar at the Château has welcomed many talented musicians, like those of the Estivales de musique en Médoc or the winners of the Bordeaux String Quartet Competition.
En août dernier, le spectaculaire Chai circulaire de Château Lafite accueillait sa première dégustation « virtuelle » : une dégustation filmée pour être retransmise, en direct et simultanément, dans 3 villes des Etats-Unis : Dallas, New-York et Chicago.
