Tasting Notes

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.

Provenance

This collection comes to us from Montreal where it has been meticulously built up since about 2003 when the couple decided to start collecting wine.Ê The purchases occurred primarily from the LCBO (Ontario government store) and the SAQ (Quebec government store) on release whenever possible.Ê It was always intended to purchase the best wines possible and the inventory will show that commitment.Ê The cellar itself had proper cooling and humidification systems and was indeed a showpiece in the home.Ê A family situation has caused it to come to us for sale
