    Description

    Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2008
    Pauillac
    banded owc
    Bottle (6)


    "A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 should have been purchased before it began to soar in value because of the significance of the number 8 in the Chinese culture (denoting good luck). Representing 40% of the production, this blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc offers aromas of high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, earth, cedar and asphalt. Full, rich and stunningly concentrated, I doubt it is inferior to the 2010, just more classic as well as slightly more forward and a degree weaker in alcoholic potency (12.5% versus 13.5%)." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #194, May 2011)


    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
