Château Lafite 1995

Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

Excellent levels and appearance, tissue wrapped

Wonderfully voluptuous bouquet, stamped with First Growth class. Black cherries and glycerol invade the senses. Coffee beans and pure cassis on the palate. A thoroughbred, to use a racing term - and what could be more apt? In 2013, a very luscious nose and almost a Merlot opulence. A real taste of chocolate and spiced plums. This is all over you, with its very thick texture. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
