Occasional Wine Note:  What a magnificent specimen we have here. The concentration of fig and plum, fine tannins, and tobacco, leather, spice, and mineral undertones are so harmoniously pulled together in layers of complexity, power, and elegance. Brilliant!

    This is what the Medoc is all about. The freshness and delicacy of this wine in combination with its serious concentration and firm core are totally stunning. Time has already worked its magic and this is already delicious, but has decades in front of it.

    Critic Score: 99

    One of the greatest red wines I have tasted in its youth. Rich and long, plenty and fine; this is a really long wine with lots of grip and a powerful style that I don't often see in Lafite. Yet there is plenty of elegance here. A really complete wine with lots of future and rewards to come. (98-100) (Best Served 2029-2040)
