DescriptionChateau Lafite Rothschild 1989
"This medium ruby-colored, medium-bodied wine reveals new oak in the nose, and a spicy finish. It is a quintessentially elegant, restrained, understated style of Lafite." (90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #109, Feb 1997)
"Subtle, yet rich and decadent, offering meat, sweet berry and fresh leather on the nose. Full and very soft, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. This has so much ripe fruit. Reserved and firm, this is turning to a very fine and shy Lafite." (93 pts. James Suckling, Wine Spectator, Jan. 2010)
