Deep and generous aromas of blackberries fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied with big velvety tannins and a superlong finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater. Best after 2010. 22000 cases made. -JS

The 2001 Lafite Rothschild's deep saturated plum/purple color is accompanied by lead pencil liqueur-like notes intermixed with sweet red and black currants plums and cedar. This blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5% Merlot is a classic example of Lafite. Extremely elegant medium-bodied with intense concentration richness and sweet tannin it appears to be on a rapid evolutionary track at least in comparison to recent Lafite vintages that have been far more backward and powerful. The classy 2001 should be at its finest between 2007-2020.

Juicy lively and penetrating with sharply delineated flavors of blackberry raspberry and rose petal. Boasts the classic inner-mouth energy of this great first growth but also grew increasingly silky with extended aeration. Finishes with tongue-coating tannins and superb lift.
