This is classic French Bordeaux at its... well, its most classic. Plum, manure, earth, berry. The wine is drinking RIGHT NOW and will not get any better with any more bottle time. I only wish I had more...

Fantastic. Incredibly smooth. Has all the terroire you'd expect of an old-fashioned Bordeaux. It's age lends to a very fast open, no more than 2o minutes.

Wine Advocate ReviewThis wine has been fully mature and delicious for many years, so I was not surprised by how stunning this bottle was. It has always been an outstanding wine for the vintage - complex, rich, savory, and the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. This beauty continues to reveal the fragrance and finesse that one expects from Lafite-Rothschild but so rarely finds. A fragrant, complex bouquet of cedar, herbs, vanillin, fruitcake, and coffee is followed by a soft, gentle, graciously-constructed wine with sweet layers of fruit.
