    Description

    Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1983
    Pauillac
    4bn, 3ts, owc
    Bottle (12)

    Property of a New England gentleman. All wines sourced carefully as part of an investment portfolio and stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.

    "Finally, the 1983 Lafite is beginning to shed its tannin. The wine exhibits a deep ruby/garnet color with only a slight lightening at the edge. The intoxicatingly perfumed nose of lead pencil, pain grille, red and black fruits, minerals, and roasted herbs is provocative. In the mouth, this wine displays considerable body for a Lafite, plenty of power, and a fleshy, rich, sweet mid-palate. Long, elegant, plump, and surprisingly fleshy, this outstanding example of Lafite seems largely forgotten given the number of high quality vintages during the golden decade of the eighties." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)
