Ruby colour. The nose was made of a large aromatic bouquet. On the palate, the acidity was a little high at first, once settled in the glass for a few minutes, the wine start to show some exceptional flavours of cassis, wood and roasted nuts. It is much more balanced than the first time I tried it. It is now developing slowly a mineral style which gives a wonderful texture to the wine. A classic Lafite. Beautiful.

Intense aromas of blackberries, black licorice and currants, with mineral undertones. Full-bodied, with a solid core of tannins and a long, silky finish. Still holding back, but is concentrated and powerful. The 1996 is always talked about, but I thi... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Lafite-Rothschild 750ml

I have noticed in my tastings that the second wine of Lafite-Rothschild, Carruades de Lafite, has improved over recent years. The 1995 is a 40% Merlot/60% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. It exhibits more of... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Carruades de Lafite 750ml

The 1995 Lafite-Rothschild (only one-third of the harvest made it into the final blend) is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. The wine was showing spectacularly well when I tasted it in November, 1997. It exhibits a... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Here's the best Lafite in ages. It's a polished Bordeaux, extremely sophisticated and harmonious, with blackberry, dark chocolate and olive aromas. Full-bodied and very silky, with a lovely fruity chocolate aftertaste. Needs cellaring, but who can wa... Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

A very sunny year with a dry summer. Early in September, we had light rains which were good for the grapes. The harvests began at the normal dates with a mature yield. This is an excellent vintage, with particularly fine tannins. It is very elegant with a long palate, and can be aged for a very long time.
