Winemaker's Notes:

Lafite Rothschild sports an engraved "1999" on the bottle along with an eclipse to mark that significant historical event of August 1999. A quintessential offering from Lafite Rothschild, this prodigious wine is both elegant and intensely flavored, and almost diaphanous in its layers that unfold with no heaviness. An opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by a complex bouquet of lead pencil, graphite, cedar, crème de cassis, toast, and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with extravagant layers of richness yet little weight, and a finish that is all sweetness, ripeness, and harmony, this extraordinary Lafite increasingly appears to be a modern day clone of the majestic 1953.
