About

100

"This is a great vintage from Lafite. The profile is rich in feel, with a seriously firm tannic structure. Solid, complex and with great authority, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine, is impressively dense in dark-fruit tones. It will age for many years. Drink from 2027, although that would almost be too soon."

Product Description:

"Very dark colour, with purple glints, indicating that the wine is still very much in its youth.
The nose is still quite closed, which is to be expected after only a few months in the bottle. But it already presents good depth and plenty of complexity. Notes of fresh strawberries and tobacco, in which the wood has become perfectly integrated.
The attack is simultaneously supple and very powerful. The intensity on the palate rises steadily… gently coming to rest on a plateau that is already very high.
Not at all aggressive, it continues with great length, and in perfect harmony.
This is a Lafite that is currently revealing very little of its potential; to experience it in its full glory will require waiting… for some years." - Winery
