Description

    Pauillac
    5bn, 2lbsl, 1ltsl, 3ssos
    Bottle (5)
    "This wine...reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth, this medium ruby/garnet-colored wine displays a delicacy of fruit and sweet attack, but subtle, well-defined flavors ranging from tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake. This is a savory, soft Lafite-Rothschild that is pleasing to both the intellect and the palate." (91pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Ed., Jan 1998)
