    Pauillac
    3bn, 3ts, 1hs, different importers
    Bottle (12)
    "The 1985 Lafite is revealing more class and complexity than I predicted. A moderately intense, cedary, woody, herb and berry-scented bouquet is attractive. The wine is open-knit and ripe, with fine tannins, sweet, medium-bodied, mineral, and cassis-scented flavors, fine depth, and a graceful, harmonious feel. It is beginning to blossom and appears to possess more depth and character than I had thought." (90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #88, Aug 1993)
