Full-bodied with a solid core of tannins and a long silky finish. Still holding back but is concentrated and powerful. The 1996 is always talked about but I think this is superior and will be in the future.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 20000 cases made. -JS

Blaickish ruby with hardly any suggestion of ageing. That very refined lift of Lafite on the nose – oyster shells? Very elegant indeed – no dry tannins. Complete and with enough juice. A very fine Lafite. Lovely graphite... Blaickish ruby with hardly any suggestion of ageing. That very refined lift of Lafite on the nose – oyster shells? Very elegant indeed – no dry tannins. Complete and with enough juice. A very fine Lafite. Lovely graphite finish – sinewy. No heaviness at all. And the tannins are SO well managed! 19/20

The 1995 Lafite-Rothschild (only one-third of the harvest made it into the final blend) is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 17% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. The wine was showing spectacularly well when I tasted it in November 1997. It exhibits a dark ruby purple color and a sweet powdered mineral smoky weedy cassis-scented nose. Beautiful sweetness of fruit is present in this medium-bodied tightly-knit but gloriously pure well-delineated Lafite. The 1995 is not as powerful or as massive as the 1996 but it is beautifully made with outstanding credentials in addition to remarkable promise. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2028.

Dark ruby-red. Sappy, expressive aromas of cherry, plum, minerals, woodsmoke and game, plus an exotic suggestion of baked apple. Rather subtle on the attack, then quickly expands to fill the mouth.

Rather subtle on the attack, then quickly expands to fill the mouth. A big, deep, very rich vintage for Lafite, unusually generous at this early stage and extremely long on the aftertaste. But went into a shell with aeration, and showed a hint of tobacco leaf vegetility. Finishing notes of coconut, woodsmoke and tobacco add flavor interest. 93+
