This is Lafite. Prune and spices, with a cedar and wet tobacco character on the nose. Even tea. Full and rich with a dark China tea and cedar character. Just a hint of chocolate. Opens in the glass like a genie. Amazing.
Another excellent vintage for Lafite. Extremely fresh, with lovely blackberry and cassis character, a medium body and full tannins. Needs time. Try after 1996. (JS)
Tasted single blind at the Fine Wine Experience horizontal in London. This has a deep garnet colour, youthful in appearance whilst the nose has a touch of “New World” Cabernet about it. A few more swirls and some lovely brambly fruit, blackberry, a little liquorices and wine gums. Quite generous. The palate is medium-bodied, quite sinewy and backward, ripe and generous, nice lift, extrovert but just lacking a little poise towards the mocha/cassis-driven finish. Perhaps this could do with a little more bottle age?...(NM)
