Delivers wonderful dark chocolate, with raspberry and currant undertones. Full-bodied, featuring soft, silky tannins and a long finish. Very tight still. Needs time.

Complex aromas of blackberries, tobacco, spices and black licorice are alluring in this full-bodied claret, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Long, caressing finish. Superfine, well-structured... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Lafite-Rothschild 375ml

... Ripe, deep aromas of currant, flowers, coconut and mint. Firm and tight, with excellent cut and precision; brisk flavors of bitter cherry, berry skin and minerals. A slightly dry-edged midweight thats best today on the long, slow-building finish... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Lafite-Rothschild 750ml

... Ripe deep aromas of currant flowers coconut and mint. Firm and tight with excellent cut and precision; brisk flavors of bitter cherry berry skin and minerals. A slightly dry-edged midweight that s best today on the long slow-building finish. Shows an intriguing late note of faded rose... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: '...It is a quintessential offering from Lafite Rothschild. This prodigious<br/>wine is both elegant and intensely flavored, and almost diaphanous in its<br/>layers that unfold with no heaviness. An opaque ruby/purple color is<br/>accompanied by a complex bouquet of lead pencil, graphite, cedar, creme de<br/>cassis, toast, and vanilla. It is medium-bodied, with extravagant layers of<br/>richness yet little weight, and a finish that is all sweetness, ripeness, and<br/>harmony.... A mere one-third of the crop made it into the grand vin!<br/>Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.'<br/><br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)
