Chateau Lafite 1982
Chateau Lafite 1982
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u. 1bn, 1vts, rest good levels, excellent appearance, tissue wrapped
65% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. In 2010, there was almost a smoky nose. It is just so youthful, even haunting in its flavours, with a finish that borders on the eternal. Two years later and, after two hours in the decanter, plump, aromatic and ultra elegant. SS.

Throughout the centuries, Lafite has proved that this is a wine that ages in the most ethereal way. Lafite combines elegance, breed and scent with sustained power, a miracle of balance and nobility. The extraordinary terroir and position in Pauillac have always been matched by the Rothschilds' sense of quality and vision, resulting in a wine that has mythical status. Continuity is vital in producing a great wine and the wine-making brilliance of Charles Chevallier from the 1990s to the present day has added extra lustre to this exceptional liquid, with the fame of the property spreading further throughout the world.

When serving Lafite, decant it well in advance of drinking as its bouquet and taste amplify to multi-faceted dimensions on contact with the air. At the Chateau itself, they double decant, back into the original bottle with its unchanging, instantly recognisable label. Lafite matures slowly, developing gloriously with bottle age, as historic tastings have shown. Collect Lafite for yourself and watch it grow! SS.
