CHATEAU LAFITE 1989
Château Lafite 1989
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
Lot 167: Levels bn or into the neck, Lot 168: Levels bn or into the neck, tissue stained labels, damp-stained owc

67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, a very different grape variety composition in comparison with recent years. In 2019, the bouquet had shining breed and vivacity, jumping out of the glass at you. It is the depth and intensity, the length and the sheer, all-round flavour that astonish. When young, the tannins were tight, in that Lafite way, but now it is gloriously expressive and totally harmonious, just pure bliss. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
