    Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1949
    ms, bsl, good color
    Bottle (1)

    "Clear in color, the 1949 has a tuile core commensurate with its age. It delivers an ethereal, transparent bouquet with red cherry, meat juices, cedar and pine trees, all beautifully defined and with exquisite detail, if never a powerful set of aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, perfectly judged acidity, lighter in style than other 1949s but with a beguiling pretty, slightly savory finish with black truffle shaved over the aftertaste. This is a classic and quite understated Lafite-Rothschild that steps aside and allows Mouton-Rothschild and Latour to take all the accolades." (92 pts. Neal Martin, Vinous, Jul. 2018)
