On tasting, the 2007 Lafite-Rothschild has an elegant cigar box bouquet, with dusky black fruit and a touch of antique bureau—just classic Lafite. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, cedar and tobacco infusing the black fruit, classic in style with a conservative yet focused finish that lingers in the mouth. This is certainly the most subtle First Growth, but one of the most refined too—a sophisticated but understated Lafite-Rothschild that will age with discrete style. Tasted February 2017.
Seller:I began collecting during University in my early 20's while working retail for an Ontario winery. Initially I was drawn to the wines of Italy, but over time began to focus on French wines, especially Burgundy. I have always had a great appreciation for white wine, particularly for the wines of Chablis, Loire, Austria and Germany. Generally I purchased wines from the LCBO and directly from agents ( I keep all my invoices and probably have digital or paper copies of invoices for everything).The wines have been stored at home, in temperature controlled, specially built wine cellars.
