CHATEAU LAFITE 1988
Château Lafite 1988
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
Excellent appearance, slightly scuffed capsule, missing owc lid, cardboard replacement

72% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. Pure, cedary nose. Pure silky taste. Coffee and chocolate. Very classic then - and now. This wine just gets better and better. In 2009, at several dinners, a deep, spicy nose of great intensity. Cassis and raisins. Great, rich, cedary taste that is totally convincing and a real 'grand vin'. Meaty too, in the very best sense. An obvious keeper - I am so glad I still have some to comfort me in my old age! In 2010, this is still so young. Such a classic, almost vanillin, top Médoc. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
