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.

A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black currants, plums, and crushed rocks/mineral. 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 seems. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
