Tasting Notes

Score: 90Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Score: 90+Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (3), November 1998

This medium ruby-colored, medium-bodied wine reveals new oak in the nose and a spicy finish. It is a quintessentially elegant , restrained, understated style of Lafite. Aticipated maturity:2000-2035

Score: 90Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (109), February 1997

Wonderfrul berry and tobacco character, with chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, yet elegant and silky. Beautifully long. This is always outstanding, but sometimes overlooked. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Drink now.
