A long-running dispute between Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Cotes de Bordeaux producer Chateau Lafitte has spread to China.

First growth Lafite Rothschild has complained to China’s trademark office over the registration of the Lafitte name by its Bordeaux counterpart.

The move is continuation of a long-running battle between the two estates in France, which began in 2003 and culminated in France’s highest appeals court allowing Lafitte to keep its name in 2008.

A spokesperson for Domaines Barons de Rothschild, owner of Lafite, said, ‘As one of the most recognised brand names in China, this is part of an ongoing battle to control the unauthorised use of our name in various global markets.’

To date, the company has launched around 300 injunctions against trademark infringement within China alone.

‘We feel that we are now simply being subjected to judicial harassment,’ Philippe Mengin, owner of Chateau Lafitte, told decanter.com. His estate exports 95% of its 300,000-bottle annual production.

‘We are clearly not the same price bracket at Lafite Rothschild, and in no way resemble them visually. I now have no option but to spend another two years in legal action, and a vast amount of money, to defend the same principle that I have already proved in France.’

An independent source confirmed to decanter.com that Chateau Lafitte is currently on the market and being advertised for sale to Chinese purchasers. Chateau Lafitte traces its origins to 1763, when it was owned by Raymond Lafitte. Its 2010 vintage sells for around £20-a-bottle in Europe. Lafite Rothschild 2010 this week had a market price of £6,500 per 12-bottle case on the Liv-ex trading platform.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild

1st Cru Classe, 1855

33250 Pauillac
+33 5 57 57 79 79
www.lafite.com

Location: AOC Pauillac, next to Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, and Chateau Cos d’Estournel in AOC Saint Estephe.

Production: 112ha, Production is split between Chateau Lafite and the second wine, Carruades de Lafite. Grapes that are not used in Carruades or Pauillac DBR will go to the DBR collection, produced by parent company Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).

Five things you didn't know about Chateau Lafite-Rothschild:

- Although in AOC Pauillac, Lafite includes one 4.5 hectare plot of vines from AOC Saint Estephe (located near to Lafon Rochet) in its wines. The border between the two appellations lies just next to the Lafite vines, and the chateau has had the right (known as a dérogation) to include the cabernet sauvignon grown on this plot, known as Blanquet, since 1868.

- Even before Lafite’s purchase at auction by Baron James de Rothschild in 1868, the estate was being held up as a shining example of a financially-successful enterprise. The sales catalogue at the time of the auction commented upon its ability to make ‘100,000 francs per year simply in wine sales’. It’s safe to say that the Rothschilds have since assured its continued success.

- The estate has an onsite cooperage, which produces all the barrels needed by the Bordeaux estates of DBR (Lafite) and partially provides barrels for DBR (Lafite)'s other estates in Languedoc, Chile and Argentina – around 2,000 barrels per year.

- In the 1880s, Alphonse, Gustave and Edmond de Rothschild at Lafite and James Edouard de Rothschild at Mouton built a primary school in the local village of Mousset to teach, free of charge, the children of their staff and those of local villagers. The school still exists today.

- A second wine called Carruades has been made at Lafite for decades, but was called Moulin des Carruades until 20 years ago. The origin of the name comes from the Carruades plateau, the name of a plot of land next to the chateau’s main vineyards, purchased in 1845 by Lafite. In the early 20th century, Carruades was marketed entirely separately from Lafite before being integrated into its production and becoming the source of its second wine. But it wasn’t until the two names were linked – becoming Carruades de Lafite in the late 1980s – that it really caught the imagination of drinkers

Current owner: Baron Eric de Rothschild, who has headed up Lafite for 40 years. Christophe Salin is managing director of DBR Lafite, working out of Paris.

Most notable previous owner: Starting with Baron James in 1868, all the Rothschilds have been fairly notable. Nicolas-Alexandre, Marquis de Ségur in the 18th century was perhaps the most notable former owner, known as the ‘Prince of Vines’.

Other chateaux owned: Chateau Rieussec, Chateau Duhart Milon, Chateau L’Evangile, Domaine d’Aussieres, Vina Los Vascos, Bodegas Caro, Chateau Paradis Casseuil, Chateau Peyre-Lebade. Plus the branded DBR Collection wines. Penglai Estate DBR-CITIC, Shandong province of China, joint venture with CITIC East China Group (the first commercial vintage is expected in 2016).

Commercial strategy: Wine is sold as a future through the En Primeur system. Négociants sell 100% of production, and 95% is exported. Major markets China, England, USA, Japan, Korea, but sold in over 70 countries worldwide.

Through the centuries:

One of the oldest histories in the region, as you would expect, dating back to at least the 13th century. But serious winemaking didn’t happen at the property until the 17th century, with the arrival of Jacques de Ségur, who began expanding the vineyards in the 1670s. Soon after, Lafite made its way to the English market, and almost immediately was distinguished by high prices and powerful friends. For one year from 1732, for example, British prime minister Robert Walpole bought a barrel of Lafite every three months. Fifty years later, and soon-to-be US president Thomas Jefferson was a fan.

Lafite was clearly always a powerful name, but it’s fame was given a turbo charge when it became part of the Rothschild family in 1868, a decade after it had been named First Growth at the 1855 Universal Exhibition in Paris. Baron James, one of the five Rothschild brothers from Frankfurt, had arrived in Paris in 1812, where he became a successful financier. James invested heavily in railways, helped with the construction of the Gare du Nord station, and invested in mines, foundries, the general urbanization of Paris, besides investing in Pauillac vineyards. With the exception of a five-year occupation by German troops during World War II (when Baron Elie was held as a prisoner of war in Colditz Castle), the estate has remained within the Rothschild family ever since.

Wine consultant: Eric Boissenot, with Charles Chevallier as technical director

Plantation and vineyard work: Grapes (planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, are harvested by hand, sorted by hand in the vines before a final check once back at the winery. Some satellite imagery is used in the vines to measure ripeness, but most of the appraisal work is done by visual testing, and tasting (‘we prefer tradition to technology’ says Chevallier). Vines under 20 years of age are never used for the First Wine. Vines usually grow until around 80 years of age. The oldest plot, called La Graviere, was planted in 1886.

Vinification: Work in the cellars continues this philosophy – the malolactic fermentation is started naturally, with no added yeasts, and much of the First Wine is fermented in the same wooden vats which have been in place since the 1980s. There are a few new touches of course - an extension to the cellar has been in place since the 2011 harvest, with a range of stainless steel and cement tanks from 40 to 120 hectolitres to increase plot selection (most typically for grapes from the young vines, to ensure their progress is being meticulously tracked).

Terroir: Deep gravel, up to 10 metres in some sections, with aeolian sand and a subsoil of limestone.

Recent improvements or changes: In terms of the wine, Cabernet Franc has recently become increasingly rare in the first wine. In terms of the property itself, one of the key questions at Lafite is who will take over the family firm after Baron Eric, who is now in his 80s. He has three children, Saskia, Pietro and James, and of the three it is perhaps Saskia that is most likely to take over, as she has shown a great interest in the property while her brother Pietro is studying to be an architect in London. But Baron Eric said recently, ‘There is not a monopoly of my branch of the family taking over. There are perhaps others who should be considered.’ One thing for certain – it’s going to be another Rothschild.

Recent Decanter scores (en primeur, other tastings):
2013 en primeur – 18.25 points
2012 en primeur – 18.5 points, 5 stars
2011 en primeur – 18.5 points, 5 stars
2010 en primeur – 20 points, 5 stars

Average bottle price in UK market: £200-£700 per bottle, dependent on vintage.

拉菲古堡\/<\/span>拉菲罗斯柴尔德酒庄<\/span>

1855年评级一级酒庄<\/span>

\n

33250 波雅克\n
+33 5 57 57 79 79\n
www.lafite.com<\/a><\/p>
\n<\/center>

\n\n

位置:<\/span>波雅克AOC(AOC Pauillac),邻近同属波雅克的木桐罗斯柴尔德酒庄(Chateau Mouton Rothschild),以及属于圣爱斯泰夫法定产区(AOC Saint Estephe)的爱士图尔酒庄(Chateau Cos d’Estournel)。\n\n<\/p>

产量:<\/span>112公顷葡萄园,用于酿造拉菲古堡(Chateau Lafite)和第二标拉菲珍宝 (小拉菲,Carruades de Lafite)两款葡萄酒。质量不足以用于第三标Pauillac DBR的葡萄被用于酿造母公司拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团出品的精选系列(DBR Collection)。\n\n<\/p>

拉菲古堡之你所不知道的五件趣事:\n\n<\/p>

-虽然拉菲古堡位于法定产区波雅克,它也同时在法定产区圣爱斯泰夫拥有一片4.5公顷的葡萄园(离拉芳酒庄Lafon Rochet很近)。虽然波雅克和圣爱斯泰夫两个法定产区以拉菲古堡的葡萄园为边界,但是从1868年开始,拉菲古堡得到特许(dérogation),得以使用这片位于圣埃斯泰夫的葡萄园(被称为Blanquet)中出产的赤霞珠。\n\n<\/p>

-拉菲在1868年被詹姆斯•罗斯柴尔德男爵买下之前,就已经因其成功的商业运营而广受赞誉。拍卖目录中记载道:拉菲古堡“仅通过销售葡萄酒即可创造每年100,000法郎的收入”。可以说,罗斯柴尔德家族自从收购拉菲之后延续了其成功之路。\n\n<\/p>

-酒庄中有一个制桶厂,每年生产大约2000个木桶,供拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团的所有波尔多酒庄使用,并为该集团在朗格多克、智利和阿根廷的酒庄提供部分橡木桶。\n\n<\/p>

-19世纪80年代,拉菲古堡的庄主阿尔方索、古斯塔夫和埃德蒙•罗思柴尔德三兄弟与木桐酒庄的拥有者詹姆斯•爱德华都•罗斯柴尔德合作,在当地的村庄Mousset建起了一座小学,免费授课给酒庄员工和当地村民的孩子们,这所学校被留存至今。\n\n<\/p>

-拉菲古堡的第二标——拉菲珍宝(Carruades de Lafite)已经有数十年的历史,二十年前的名字是“Moulin des Carruades”。这个名字出自当时酒庄主要葡萄园旁边的一片土地 “Carruades高地”,这片土地于1845年被拉菲古堡买下。20世纪早期, Carruades和拉菲古堡葡萄酒的营销渠道是完全独立的,之后Carruades并入拉菲名下,Carruades高地也成了酿造酒庄第二标的葡萄产地。不过直到1980年代后期Carruades挂上了拉菲的名字,才真正开始吸引葡萄酒爱好者们的注意力。\n\n<\/p>

现任庄主:<\/span>埃里克•罗斯柴尔德男爵。他已经引领拉菲古堡走过40年的岁月。Christophe Salin任拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团总裁,在巴黎工作。\n\n<\/p>

最值得一提的前任庄主:<\/span>从1868年买下酒庄的詹姆斯•罗斯柴尔德男爵开始,罗斯柴尔德家族的继承人都相当引人瞩目。18世纪的塞居尔侯爵(Marquis de Ségur)尼古拉斯-亚历山大可能是其中最声名显赫的庄主,被称为“葡萄王子”。\n\n<\/p>

旗下其他酒庄:<\/span>莱斯古堡(Chateau Rieussec)[1]<\/sup>、杜哈米隆古堡(Chateau Duhart Milon)[2]<\/sup>、乐王吉古堡(Chateau L’Evangile)、奥希耶庄园(Domaine d’Aussieres)、巴斯克酒庄(Vina Los Vascos)、凯洛酒庄(Bodegas Caro)、卡瑟天堂古堡(Chateau Paradis Casseuil)、岩石古堡(Chateau Peyre-Lebade),以及拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团精选系列。此外,还有与中信华东(集团)有限公司组建的合资公司、位于中国山东省的蓬莱罗斯柴尔德男爵中信酒业(第一个商业化年份预计为2016年份)。<\/p>\n

商业策略:<\/b>葡萄酒通过期酒系统以期货形式出售。100%的产量由中间商(Négociants)销售,其中95%出口。主要市场包括中国、英国、美国、日本、韩国,在世界上70多个国家有售。\n\n<\/p>

第二标葡萄酒:<\/span>拉菲珍宝。拉菲酒庄还有第三标葡萄酒,使用拉菲古堡和杜哈米隆古堡出产的葡萄混酿而成,酒标是“Pauillac DBR”。\n\n<\/p>

酒庄历史:<\/span>
<\/p>

该地区最古老的酒庄之一,其历史至少可以追溯到13世纪,但是真正意义上的酿酒活动则从17世纪才开始。17世纪70年代开始,Jacques de Ségur大规模扩建葡萄园。随后拉菲很快走入英国市场,几乎立刻就被赋予昂贵的价格,并赢得了显赫的支持者。举例来说,自1732年起,英国首相罗伯特•沃波尔每隔三个月就会买一桶拉菲葡萄酒。50年后,即将成为美国总统的托马斯•杰斐逊也成了拉菲葡萄酒的忠实拥趸。\n\n<\/p>

拉菲显然一直都是非常有威望的一个名字。不过1855年的巴黎世界博览会中它被评为一级酒庄,十三年后的1868年又被罗斯柴尔德家族收入旗下,都令它进一步声名大增。来自法兰克福的罗斯柴尔德家族五兄弟之一的詹姆斯男爵1812年来到巴黎,成为了一位成功的金融家。詹姆斯在注资波雅克葡萄园的同时,还在铁路上投入大笔资金,协助建成了巴黎北站,并投资采矿业、铸造业和巴黎的城市化建设。除了在第二次世界大战期间被德军占领的五年以外(期间埃里男爵沦为战俘,被囚禁在Colditz城堡),酒庄一直在罗斯柴尔德家族的管辖之下。\n\n<\/p>

葡萄酒顾问:<\/span>Eric Boissenot。Charles Chevallier担任酒庄的技术总监。\n\n<\/p>

葡萄种植比例和作业方式:<\/span>葡萄品种为70%赤霞珠,25%梅乐,3%品丽珠和2%小维尔多,全部手工采摘分类,运送回酒窖后还会被重新检查。卫星图像被用于检验葡萄的成熟度,但大部分的葡萄是通过人工查验、品尝挑选的(技术总监Chevallier曾说:“比起高科技,我们更青睐传统方式”)。20年以下树龄的葡萄藤绝不会被用于酿造第一标的拉菲古堡。葡萄藤一般能够存活80年,最古老的葡萄园La Graviere则种植于1886年。\n\n<\/p>

酿酒:<\/span>酿酒工作依然遵循传统为先的理念。苹果酸-乳酸发酵以自然状态开始,不添加酵母;第一标葡萄酒的大部分在20世纪80年代即开始使用的大木桶中发酵。当然,传统中也有技术革新:2011年收获季之后,拉菲古堡的酒窖得到扩建,引入了数个40-120百升容量的不锈钢和水泥槽,以便更细致地对不同葡萄田生产的葡萄进行分类筛选(最典型的作用是对来自年轻葡萄藤的葡萄的发酵过程进行细致的追踪)。\n\n<\/p>

风土:<\/span>碎砂石地基,有些地方深达10米。含有风积沙(aeolian sand),以石灰岩为底土。\n\n<\/p>

近期动向:<\/span>在葡萄酒方面,第一标葡萄酒已经越来越少使用品丽珠葡萄了。在酒庄方面,对拉菲而言最重要的问题之一是在年逾80的埃里克•罗斯柴尔德男爵之后,会由谁来继承酒庄。埃里克有三个孩子:Saskia、Pietro和James;三个人之中Saskia最有可能成为继承者,因为她对酒庄表现了极大的兴趣。弟弟Pietro正在伦敦学习,并即将成为一位建筑师。可是埃里克男爵曾突如其来地表示:“拉菲古堡的继承人并非只能出自我的直系亲属,罗斯柴尔德家族中的其他人也可能被列入考虑。”不过有一点是肯定的——继承者一定会是罗斯柴尔德家族的成员。\n\n<\/p>

Location:<\/span> AOC Pauillac, next to Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, and Chateau Cos d’Estournel in AOC Saint Estephe.\n\n<\/p>

Production:<\/span> 112ha, Production is split between Chateau Lafite and the second wine, Carruades de Lafite. Grapes that are not used in Carruades or Pauillac DBR will go to the DBR collection, produced by parent company Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).\n\n<\/p>

Five things you didn't know about Chateau Lafite-Rothschild:\n<\/p>

- Although in AOC Pauillac, Lafite includes one 4.5 hectare plot of vines from AOC Saint Estephe (located near to Lafon Rochet) in its wines. The border between the two appellations lies just next to the Lafite vines, and the chateau has had the right (known as a dérogation) to include the cabernet sauvignon grown on this plot, known as Blanquet, since 1868. \n\n<\/p>

- Even before Lafite’s purchase at auction by Baron James de Rothschild in 1868, the estate was being held up as a shining example of a financially-successful enterprise. The sales catalogue at the time of the auction commented upon its ability to make ‘100,000 francs per year simply in wine sales’. It’s safe to say that the Rothschilds have since assured its continued success.\n\n<\/p>

- The estate has an onsite cooperage, which produces all the barrels needed by the Bordeaux estates of DBR (Lafite) and partially provides barrels for DBR (Lafite)'s other estates in Languedoc, Chile and Argentina – around 2,000 barrels per year. \n\n<\/p>

- In the 1880s, Alphonse, Gustave and Edmond de Rothschild at Lafite and James Edouard de Rothschild at Mouton built a primary school in the local village of Mousset to teach, free of charge, the children of their staff and those of local villagers. The school still exists today.\n\n<\/p>

- A second wine called Carruades has been made at Lafite for decades, but was called Moulin des Carruades until 20 years ago. The origin of the name comes from the Carruades plateau, the name of a plot of land next to the chateau’s main vineyards, purchased in 1845 by Lafite. In the early 20th century, Carruades was marketed entirely separately from Lafite before being integrated into its production and becoming the source of its second wine. But it wasn’t until the two names were linked – becoming Carruades de Lafite in the late 1980s – that it really caught the imagination of drinkers\n\n<\/p>

Current owner:<\/span> Baron Eric de Rothschild, who has headed up Lafite for 40 years. Christophe Salin is managing director of DBR Lafite, working out of Paris.\n\n<\/p>

Most notable previous owner:<\/span> Starting with Baron James in 1868, all the Rothschilds have been fairly notable. Nicolas-Alexandre, Marquis de Ségur in the 18th century was perhaps the most notable former owner, known as the ‘Prince of Vines’.\n\n<\/p>

Other chateaux owned:<\/span> Chateau Rieussec, Chateau Duhart Milon, Chateau L’Evangile, Domaine d’Aussieres, Vina Los Vascos, Bodegas Caro, Chateau Paradis Casseuil, Chateau Peyre-Lebade. Plus the branded DBR Collection wines. Penglai Estate DBR-CITIC, Shandong province of China, joint venture with CITIC East China Group (the first commercial vintage is expected in 2016).\n\n<\/p>

Commercial strategy:<\/span> Wine is sold as a future through the En Primeur system. Négociants sell 100% of production, and 95% is exported. Major markets China, England, USA, Japan, Korea, but sold in over 70 countries worldwide.\n\n<\/p>

Second wine:<\/span> Carruades de Lafite. There is also a third wine, a blend of grapes from both Lafite and Duhart Milon, labelled as Pauillac DBR.\n\n
<\/p>

Through the centuries:<\/span>
<\/p>

One of the oldest histories in the region, as you would expect, dating back to at least the 13th century. But serious winemaking didn’t happen at the property until the 17th century, with the arrival of Jacques de Ségur, who began expanding the vineyards in the 1670s. Soon after, Lafite made its way to the English market, and almost immediately was distinguished by high prices and powerful friends. For one year from 1732, for example, British prime minister Robert Walpole bought a barrel of Lafite every three months. Fifty years later, and soon-to-be US president Thomas Jefferson was a fan.\n\n<\/p>

Lafite was clearly always a powerful name, but it’s fame was given a turbo charge when it became part of the Rothschild family in 1868, a decade after it had been named First Growth at the 1855 Universal Exhibition in Paris. Baron James, one of the five Rothschild brothers from Frankfurt, had arrived in Paris in 1812, where he became a successful financier. James invested heavily in railways, helped with the construction of the Gare du Nord station, and invested in mines, foundries, the general urbanization of Paris, besides investing in Pauillac vineyards. With the exception of a five-year occupation by German troops during World War II (when Baron Elie was held as a prisoner of war in Colditz Castle), the estate has remained within the Rothschild family ever since.\n\n<\/p>

Wine consultant:<\/span> Eric Boissenot, with Charles Chevallier as technical director\n\n<\/p>

Plantation and vineyard work:<\/span> Grapes (planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, are harvested by hand, sorted by hand in the vines before a final check once back at the winery. Some satellite imagery is used in the vines to measure ripeness, but most of the appraisal work is done by visual testing, and tasting (‘we prefer tradition to technology’ says Chevallier). Vines under 20 years of age are never used for the First Wine. Vines usually grow until around 80 years of age. The oldest plot, called La Graviere, was planted in 1886. \n\n<\/p>

Vinification:<\/span> Work in the cellars continues this philosophy – the malolactic fermentation is started naturally, with no added yeasts, and much of the First Wine is fermented in the same wooden vats which have been in place since the 1980s. There are a few new touches of course - an extension to the cellar has been in place since the 2011 harvest, with a range of stainless steel and cement tanks from 40 to 120 hectolitres to increase plot selection (most typically for grapes from the young vines, to ensure their progress is being meticulously tracked). \n\n<\/p>

Terroir:<\/span> Deep gravel, up to 10 metres in some sections, with aeolian sand and a subsoil of limestone.\n\n<\/p>

Recent improvements or changes:<\/span> In terms of the wine, Cabernet Franc has recently become increasingly rare in the first wine. In terms of the property itself, one of the key questions at Lafite is who will take over the family firm after Baron Eric, who is now in his 80s. He has three children, Saskia, Pietro and James, and of the three it is perhaps Saskia that is most likely to take over, as she has shown a great interest in the property while her brother Pietro is studying to be an architect in London. But Baron Eric said recently, ‘There is not a monopoly of my branch of the family taking over. There are perhaps others who should be considered.’ One thing for certain – it’s going to be another Rothschild.\n\n<\/p>

拉菲古堡\/<\/span>拉菲罗斯柴尔德酒庄<\/span>

\n(Chateau Lafite Rothschild)

1855年评级一级酒庄<\/span>

\n

33250 波雅克\n
+33 5 57 57 79 79\n
www.lafite.com<\/a><\/p>
\n<\/center>

\n\n

位置:<\/span>波雅克AOC(AOC Pauillac),邻近同属波雅克的木桐罗斯柴尔德酒庄(Chateau Mouton Rothschild),以及属于圣爱斯泰夫法定产区(AOC Saint Estephe)的爱士图尔酒庄(Chateau Cos d’Estournel)。\n\n<\/p>

产量:<\/span>112公顷葡萄园,用于酿造拉菲古堡(Chateau Lafite)和第二标拉菲珍宝 (小拉菲,Carruades de Lafite)两款葡萄酒。质量不足以用于第三标Pauillac DBR的葡萄被用于酿造母公司拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团出品的精选系列(DBR Collection)。\n\n<\/p>

拉菲古堡之你所不知道的五件趣事:\n\n<\/p>

-虽然拉菲古堡位于法定产区波雅克,它也同时在法定产区圣爱斯泰夫拥有一片4.5公顷的葡萄园(离拉芳酒庄Lafon Rochet很近)。虽然波雅克和圣爱斯泰夫两个法定产区以拉菲古堡的葡萄园为边界,但是从1868年开始,拉菲古堡得到特许(dérogation),得以使用这片位于圣埃斯泰夫的葡萄园(被称为Blanquet)中出产的赤霞珠。\n\n<\/p>

-拉菲在1868年被詹姆斯•罗斯柴尔德男爵买下之前,就已经因其成功的商业运营而广受赞誉。拍卖目录中记载道:拉菲古堡“仅通过销售葡萄酒即可创造每年100,000法郎的收入”。可以说,罗斯柴尔德家族自从收购拉菲之后延续了其成功之路。\n\n<\/p>

-酒庄中有一个制桶厂,每年生产大约2000个木桶,供拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团的所有波尔多酒庄使用,并为该集团在朗格多克、智利和阿根廷的酒庄提供部分橡木桶。\n\n<\/p>

-19世纪80年代,拉菲古堡的庄主阿尔方索、古斯塔夫和埃德蒙•罗思柴尔德三兄弟与木桐酒庄的拥有者詹姆斯•爱德华都•罗斯柴尔德合作,在当地的村庄Mousset建起了一座小学,免费授课给酒庄员工和当地村民的孩子们,这所学校被留存至今。\n\n<\/p>

-拉菲古堡的第二标——拉菲珍宝(Carruades de Lafite)已经有数十年的历史,二十年前的名字是“Moulin des Carruades”。这个名字出自当时酒庄主要葡萄园旁边的一片土地 “Carruades高地”,这片土地于1845年被拉菲古堡买下。20世纪早期, Carruades和拉菲古堡葡萄酒的营销渠道是完全独立的,之后Carruades并入拉菲名下,Carruades高地也成了酿造酒庄第二标的葡萄产地。不过直到1980年代后期Carruades挂上了拉菲的名字,才真正开始吸引葡萄酒爱好者们的注意力。\n\n<\/p>

现任庄主:<\/span>埃里克•罗斯柴尔德男爵。他已经引领拉菲古堡走过40年的岁月。Christophe Salin任拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团总裁,在巴黎工作。\n\n<\/p>

最值得一提的前任庄主:<\/span>从1868年买下酒庄的詹姆斯•罗斯柴尔德男爵开始,罗斯柴尔德家族的继承人都相当引人瞩目。18世纪的塞居尔侯爵(Marquis de Ségur)尼古拉斯-亚历山大可能是其中最声名显赫的庄主,被称为“葡萄王子”。\n\n<\/p>

旗下其他酒庄:<\/span>莱斯古堡(Chateau Rieussec)[1]<\/sup>、杜哈米隆古堡(Chateau Duhart Milon)[2]<\/sup>、乐王吉古堡(Chateau L’Evangile)、奥希耶庄园(Domaine d’Aussieres)、巴斯克酒庄(Vina Los Vascos)、凯洛酒庄(Bodegas Caro)、卡瑟天堂古堡(Chateau Paradis Casseuil)、岩石古堡(Chateau Peyre-Lebade),以及拉菲罗斯柴尔德集团精选系列。此外,还有与中信华东(集团)有限公司组建的合资公司、位于中国山东省的蓬莱罗斯柴尔德男爵中信酒业(第一个商业化年份预计为2016年份)。<\/p>\n

商业策略:<\/b>葡萄酒通过期酒系统以期货形式出售。100%的产量由中间商(Négociants)销售,其中95%出口。主要市场包括中国、英国、美国、日本、韩国,在世界上70多个国家有售。\n\n<\/p>

第二标葡萄酒:<\/span>拉菲珍宝。拉菲酒庄还有第三标葡萄酒,使用拉菲古堡和杜哈米隆古堡出产的葡萄混酿而成,酒标是“Pauillac DBR”。\n\n<\/p>

酒庄历史:<\/span>
<\/p>

该地区最古老的酒庄之一,其历史至少可以追溯到13世纪,但是真正意义上的酿酒活动则从17世纪才开始。17世纪70年代开始,Jacques de Ségur大规模扩建葡萄园。随后拉菲很快走入英国市场,几乎立刻就被赋予昂贵的价格,并赢得了显赫的支持者。举例来说,自1732年起,英国首相罗伯特•沃波尔每隔三个月就会买一桶拉菲葡萄酒。50年后,即将成为美国总统的托马斯•杰斐逊也成了拉菲葡萄酒的忠实拥趸。\n\n<\/p>

拉菲显然一直都是非常有威望的一个名字。不过1855年的巴黎世界博览会中它被评为一级酒庄,十三年后的1868年又被罗斯柴尔德家族收入旗下,都令它进一步声名大增。来自法兰克福的罗斯柴尔德家族五兄弟之一的詹姆斯男爵1812年来到巴黎,成为了一位成功的金融家。詹姆斯在注资波雅克葡萄园的同时,还在铁路上投入大笔资金,协助建成了巴黎北站,并投资采矿业、铸造业和巴黎的城市化建设。除了在第二次世界大战期间被德军占领的五年以外(期间埃里男爵沦为战俘,被囚禁在Colditz城堡),酒庄一直在罗斯柴尔德家族的管辖之下。\n\n<\/p>

葡萄酒顾问:<\/span>Eric Boissenot。Charles Chevallier担任酒庄的技术总监。\n\n<\/p>

葡萄种植比例和作业方式:<\/span>葡萄品种为70%赤霞珠,25%梅乐,3%品丽珠和2%小维尔多,全部手工采摘分类,运送回酒窖后还会被重新检查。卫星图像被用于检验葡萄的成熟度,但大部分的葡萄是通过人工查验、品尝挑选的(技术总监Chevallier曾说:“比起高科技,我们更青睐传统方式”)。20年以下树龄的葡萄藤绝不会被用于酿造第一标的拉菲古堡。葡萄藤一般能够存活80年,最古老的葡萄园La Graviere则种植于1886年。\n\n<\/p>

酿酒:<\/span>酿酒工作依然遵循传统为先的理念。苹果酸-乳酸发酵以自然状态开始,不添加酵母;第一标葡萄酒的大部分在20世纪80年代即开始使用的大木桶中发酵。当然,传统中也有技术革新:2011年收获季之后,拉菲古堡的酒窖得到扩建,引入了数个40-120百升容量的不锈钢和水泥槽,以便更细致地对不同葡萄田生产的葡萄进行分类筛选(最典型的作用是对来自年轻葡萄藤的葡萄的发酵过程进行细致的追踪)。\n\n<\/p>

风土:<\/span>碎砂石地基,有些地方深达10米。含有风积沙(aeolian sand),以石灰岩为底土。\n\n<\/p>

近期动向:<\/span>在葡萄酒方面,第一标葡萄酒已经越来越少使用品丽珠葡萄了。在酒庄方面,对拉菲而言最重要的问题之一是在年逾80的埃里克•罗斯柴尔德男爵之后,会由谁来继承酒庄。埃里克有三个孩子:Saskia、Pietro和James;三个人之中Saskia最有可能成为继承者,因为她对酒庄表现了极大的兴趣。弟弟Pietro正在伦敦学习,并即将成为一位建筑师。可是埃里克男爵曾突如其来地表示:“拉菲古堡的继承人并非只能出自我的直系亲属,罗斯柴尔德家族中的其他人也可能被列入考虑。”不过有一点是肯定的——继承者一定会是罗斯柴尔德家族的成员。\n\n<\/p>

China's supreme court has suspended a CNY34m (US$5.6m) fine levied on French wine group Castel over a trademark dispute with a local producer in the country.

Castel said this week that it has succeeded in blocking the fine, after it appealed to the supreme court towards the end of last year.

The ruling, although only temporary, marks a potentially important victory for Castel in its long-running battle with Shanghai-based distributor Panati Wine over the Ka-Si-Te trademark name in China.

The supreme court's decision overturns an earlier ruling in the Zhejiang Provincial Superior People’s Court, which last year ordered Castel to pay CNY34m (US$5.6m) in damages to Panati Wine for infringement of the Ka-Si-Te trademark.

There will now be a retrial, said Castel. It believes that its chances of eventual success have increased following the supreme court decision, which found that the lower court wrongly applied commercial law.

‘Castel Freres is prepared to take any measures required to protect its legitimate interests in China,’ the group said late last year.

In March 2013, Castel announced it had registered the name Kasidaile as a trademark in China.

China's supreme court has suspended a CNY34m (US$5.6m) fine levied on French wine group Castel over a trademark dispute with a local producer in the country.\n\n<\/p>

Castel said this week that it has succeeded in blocking the fine, after it appealed to the supreme court towards the end of last year. \n\n<\/p>

A long-running dispute between Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Cotes de Bordeaux producer Chateau Lafitte has spread to China.

First growth Lafite Rothschild has complained to China’s trademark office over the registration of the Lafitte name by its Bordeaux counterpart.

The move is continuation of a long-running battle between the two estates in France, which began in 2003 and culminated in France’s highest appeals court allowing Lafitte to keep its name in 2008.

A spokesperson for Domaines Barons de Rothschild, owner of Lafite, said, ‘As one of the most recognised brand names in China, this is part of an ongoing battle to control the unauthorised use of our name in various global markets.’

To date, the company has launched around 300 injunctions against trademark infringement within China alone.

‘We feel that we are now simply being subjected to judicial harassment,’ Philippe Mengin, owner of Chateau Lafitte, told decanter.com. His estate exports 95% of its 300,000-bottle annual production.

‘We are clearly not the same price bracket at Lafite Rothschild, and in no way resemble them visually. I now have no option but to spend another two years in legal action, and a vast amount of money, to defend the same principle that I have already proved in France.’

An independent source confirmed to decanter.com that Chateau Lafitte is currently on the market and being advertised for sale to Chinese purchasers. Chateau Lafitte traces its origins to 1763, when it was owned by Raymond Lafitte. Its 2010 vintage sells for around £20-a-bottle in Europe. Lafite Rothschild 2010 this week had a market price of £6,500 per 12-bottle case on the Liv-ex trading platform.
