Tasted 7 Times Since Bottling With Consistent Notes Broodingly backward and in need of considerable bottle age the 1988 is a classic expression of Lafite. This deeply-colored wine exhibits the tell-tale Lafite bouquet of cedar subtle herbs dried pit fruits minerals and cassis. Extremely concentrated with brilliantly focused flavors and huge tannins this backward yet impressively endowed Lafite-Rothschild may well turn out to be the wine of the vintage! Anticipated maturity: 2000-2035.

Beautiful and subtle on the nose with mineral berry licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a pretty balance of fruit and mint. Long and caressing. Real claret here. Everyone talks about 1989... Beautiful and subtle on the nose with mineral berry licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a pretty balance of fruit and mint.
