This has always been, and remains, one of my favourite Clarets ever. In 2016, I was lucky enough to 'see' it again (i.e. to drink copiously) from a double magnum and it was knock-out gorgeous. Nobility, richness, velvety complexity - it has it all. Beauteous and mouth-coating, it has the aura of eternal life, helped by the large format which infinitely suits a wine of such immense body and opulence. The scent permeates the taste and, I realise, vice versa. Lafite nailed this vintage to a glorious level and experiencing it marks one for life. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
