ITEM 8242868 - Removed from a subterranean wine cellar; Purchased at retail
This smells like a bouquet of flowers with blueberries and currants and spices. Full body, yet agile and refined. So fine and pretty. It's balanced and in harmony. Savory. A smoky, decadent and meat undertone.
...displays much of the same lead pencil, charcoal and black currant notes of its bigger sister...will cellar beautifully for at least 20-25 more years.
Solid, with bright cassis, fig and blackberry fruit studded with tobacco leaf, anise and violet. The long finish has a tarry thread, but stays polished and refined overall, with a whiff of sandalwood lingering gently.
Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet and graphite minerality. Pure, very fresh dark berry and mineral flavors carry through the long, refined, almost dainty finish. The tannins are impressively silky for a second wine.
Very savoury and glossy. Immediate polish on the nose here. Raspberries and tar. Great intensity and fluidity... Very fine wine by any measure. Bone dry. Minerals and chew on the end but no rustic tannins. Very fine and long.
This is a second label of Château Lafite-Rothschild
