Quite aromatic. Very sumptuous texture and a lovely herald of the vintage. Very ripe and mulberry flavoured and, without tasting the grand vin, you could really lose yourself in this - such fine tannins - truly cashmere! Drink 2015-25 Score:18/20 Jancis Robinson

Black-red, full, fragrant, spicy, rich yet full of restrained elegance, superbly aromatic and supple, a gorgeous wine, true class. Drink 2010-20. Score:18/20 Steven Spurrier

Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, currants and spices. Full-bodied and focused, with fine, tight tannins and a chocolate, berry and licorice aftertaste. Serious second wine of Lafite. Could be as outstanding as the 2000. Score: 91/100 James Suckling

Good deep red. Pungent aromas of currant, cherry skin, leather, graphite, olive and flowers. Suave, minerally and penetrating, with lovely energy and floral lift. Not at all a fleshy style but classic, vibrant and firmly built, finishing with excellent lift. Score:91/100 Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar
