In tasting this wine over the course of several days it transforms from the overt richness of puppy fat and new oak to a more supple enigma. The pure clean fruit flavors of blueberry jam turn earthier while the oak becomes more of a veil. This Lafite will require 20 years or more to begin to show its character and it should reward those with the patience to wait. Wine & Spirits.
Lafiteâ_Ts Merlot harvest occurred between September 15-22 and the Cabernet Sauvignon from September 27 until the end of the first week of October. Only 42% of the production made it into the grand vin (a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon 16% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot). The 2006 is a tannic restrained effort that brings to mind the 1988. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of graphite creme de cassis spice and subtle wood. Medium-bodied and richly fruity with decent acidity and a long finish it will require 8-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 4-5 decades. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
