The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades. This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of... 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white chocolate, cocoa and cassis. Fat, rich, opulent and full-bodied with low acidity and stunning seductiveness and complexity, this noble wine possesses a bountiful, generous, heady style. WA 100 - 08/14
