Description

    Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982
    Pauillac
    6htal, 1tal, 1ll, 1sos, 1spc
    Bottle (12)
    "Rather bluer than the Latour 1982. Quite a youthful looking crimson. Lightish very mineral nose without that much evolution. Very delicate mouthfeel. No observable tannin until the very, very end of the palate. Very fresh and delicate and somehow 'pointed'. Not heavy with a little bit of acidity but all in all closer to the Latour than in most vintages. Dry finish." (18.5pts JR, Nov 2010)

    "Still backward with a deep ruby/plum color revealing only a touch of lightening at the edge, the wine offers up an extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity." (97+ pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)

    "Dark ruby red. Mineral, berry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A silky, seductive wine." (94 pts. James Suckling, Wine Spectator, June 2001)
