Ch. Lafite Rothschild (0.75 L)


Broody nose, with blackberry, tar, a touch of mulberry and boysenberry. Good definition, still youthful. A hint of black olives developing in the glass then overt cedar and sandalwood tones. Medium-bodied on the palate, a slightly looser structure than I was expected, good acidity, silky mouthfeel with briary and a little damson coming through on the quasi-Pomerol like about the finish. Moderate length although it trails off a little on the aftertaste. It remains perhaps the best í»97 First Growth. Drink now-2018. Tasted September 2008.
