CHATEAU LAFITE 1945
Château Lafite 1945
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
Good levels and clarity, pale but bright in color, Soiled and slightly nicked label, reconditioned in the Chateau in 1992 with a new capsule

Last drunk at home to bring in the New Year 2010, a truly magnificent bottle that came from my late father-in-law's cellar. 1945, 2000 and 2008 were the only years when the bottle was embossed with the vintage. The colour was like a deep, 20-year old Tawny Port. My drinking partner (and husband) David Peppercorn made the spot-on remark, 'sooner or later, Lafite takes over from the vintage' - and this was never more true. An intoxicating, exciting bouquet of heather and honey - pure nostalgia - with that ethereal Lafite quality. You could almost drink it on the nose. You do not feel you are drinking a big, tannic wine, but there is firmness and luscious body behind the scented bliss. The fabulous, persistent, sweet Lafite flavour at the end, together with the extraordinary Lafite taste of a rich compote of wild herbs. As David says, all-conquering Lafite, all through.
