Bubbling over with crushed berries currants and spices with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy...

A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage this is classic Lafite...This is a medium-weight quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black currants plums and crushed rocks/mineral. Wonderfully pure dense with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit definition and a long finish this is a brilliant elegant Lafite Rothschild that builds incrementally in the mouth and has more power and density than it initially seems...

The nose is complex and intense with aromas of blackberry, pencil-lead, black olive, sous-bois and cedar. Very Pauillac and it just builds and builds in the glass. The palate displays a seductive entry, supple texture, very smooth and silky with blackberry, boysenberry and something quite sweet, dates or fig. Then towards the finish, it draws back and becomes more tannic and masculine, as if it say: “that’s enough”. An intriguing wine, quite mercurial in the glass.

Extremely suave fine-grained and concentrated with a strong spine of acidity. Finishes firmly tannic subtle and very long. This should develop slowly. 92(+?) points
