Tasting Notes

96-100 points Robert Parker: "One of the vintage's most prodigious wines, the 2003 may be a modern day clone of the 1959. Unusually opulent and viscous, with a dense purple color and an amazingly complex nose of scorched earth, Asian soy, balsamic vinegar, black currants, plums and even some figs, Lafite tips the scales at 12.75 alcohol (less than expected)... A wine of great intensity, tremendous viscosity and density with low acidity...and a magnificent finish, but all with great precision, purity, and freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking..." (04/05) 95-100 points Wine Spectator: "Currants, blackberries, cedar and light tobacco. Very pure and fresh, like crushed berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe tannins and a long, long finish. Exciting, yet polished and refined. This is a rich and structured Lafite. Very classic style." (04/04) Barrel sample according to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "86% cabernet sauvignon, 9% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Deep, rich nose of cassis and toasty oak. Thick mid-palate-long and sweet. Big wine with very long aftertaste. Has finesse, but a brute of a wine-concentrated. Will cellar well for many years. Outstanding. **.5+" (04/04) Please Note - The 2003 Bordeaux futures will be bottled from April 2005 to August 2005 (approx.) and sent here sometime between January 2006 and July 2007 (with few possible exceptions delayed further).
