Château Lafite 2000

Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

Excellent levels and appearance, tissue wrapped

Great scent, dominated by loganberries when it was young. Superb, juicy black fruit on the palate. Such a ripe finish, mouthwatering all the way through. That real, total super-healthy 2000 nose to it. One now senses the opulence of this wine, with all its layers. Such a vivid taste of plums. Such fresh acidity - still a baby. This will last a century if desired, so think two generations on. Serena Sutcliffe, MW

WA 98+

3 d.mags - 3 litres (owc)
