Chateau Lafite 1955
Chateau Lafite 1955
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
Nicked, slightly faded and damp stained label, rebouchage fait par le Maitre du chai du Chateau
A gloriously scented Lafite, with similarities to Mouton - hardly surprising since their vineyards adjoin. Intriguing notes of sandalwood. This wine has remained bewitching and was a highlight of a great 2009 Lafite vertical. Do not look for weight now, but the charm is very attractive indeed. 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.
