Impeccable wine. On point. There is no doubt that the vineyards are great and the team was top notch.

Great to try a piece of history. Fruit has receded a bit and secondary notes are coming through. A bit of tobacco and cigar box-classic.

Amazing. Drinking remarkably young. Much life left in this bottle indeed.

Lots of leather and tobacco, quite rustic - a classic!

Decanted 90mins before having with venison. It was nice but not great. Put lid on decanter to have the next night. Had with chicken. It was still good. Held up well decanted

Dirt and tree bark on the nose, reasonably balanced for it's age with a longer than expected sour cherry finish.

Did a side by side with Petrus (I know, I was slumming tonight). Petrus held better on the finish, Lafite more appealing on the initial nose, but faded quickly. Overall, the win goes to Petrus.
