i've had the ridiculous luck of having this wine twice in 2 years in france with my family. both occasions were singular experiences in wine tasting. one bottle we had with nothing but a fresh baguette and cheeses from la seneri. the way this wine complemented the exquisite roquefort only enhanced one the other. this wine and the '86 were as good i ever could imagine wine could be.

Intense dark red color. Ripe fruity fresh and especially fine nose. Delicate on entry and offering its typical magical touch the wine is refined with vibrant aromas and a normal body. Melting on the palate and finishing tasty long with refined tannins. Very elegant. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

Broad, complex and harmonious, sweet and a mite pruny, but it cascades with cedary, earthy cherry flavors.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Lafite-Rothschild 750ml

This is a denser version of the 1990 that stylistically reminds me of what the young 1959 probably tasted like. Still backward with a deep ruby/plum color revealing only a touch of lightening at the edge, the wine offers up an extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity. With 6-8 hours decanting in a closed decanter, it will offer beautiful drinking, but it needs another 5-8 years to reach full maturity. It is capable of lasting 50-60 years. This classic Lafite is not as fat and concentrated as the 1982 Latour, nor as complex or concentrated as the 1982 Mouton Rothschild, but it is a winner all the same.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: <br/> A true classic. Intense crimsom to garnet red in colour and a tight compact nose of rich concentrated ripe fruits, bubbled cream and liquorice. Wonderfully harmonious on the palate with svelte tannins, fine concentration and a finish that lasts and lasts.<br/><br/>
