Pauillac-Chalone Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac Réserve Spéciale Domaine Rothschild 2002
After average weather conditions in August, September and October were sunny, dry and warm. As a result, these conditions allowed for a later harvest for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc, and all left bank wines. It is in Médoc and Graves that we find the best 2002 vintages! Intense and brilliant red purple colour, a rich and complex nose, blending ripe fruit (cassis, black cherries) with discreetly toasted spicy notes. An ample and fleshy wine with strong tannins and intense and full aromas. It has long finish with notes of liquorice.

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Carruades de Lafite 750ml
Bubbling over with crushed berries currants and spices with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy... Wine Spectator.
Subdued but pure aromas of currant plum minerals graphite and sexy coconutty oak; showed a floral note with aeration. Extremely suave fine-grained and concentrated with a strong spine of acidity. Finishes firmly tannic subtle and very long. This should develop slowly. 92(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Wonderfully pure dense with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit definition and a long finish this is a brilliant elegant Lafite Rothschild that builds incrementally in the mouth and has more power and density than it initially s
