Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1989 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Question Mark Grape variety:

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. This is fresh and structured, but still holding back. 93/100 Wine Spectator

This Lafite seems to be coming into its own now. It's a wine with a character of cloves and berries with hints plums. It shows loads of potpourri. Roses too. Full and so balanced. Tight and youthful. The winemaker at Lafite says that when he wants to show someone a perfect example of Pauillac this is the Lafite he pours. Maybe he is right? 97/100 James Suckling (12/2013)
