Good deep ruby-red. Sexy aromas of currant, minerals and gunpowder tea. Densely packed and minerally, with uncompromising dryness and a firm edge of acidity. Very old school and in need of bottle aging, yet this already has considerable sex appeal. Read more

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front

Super value. Pungent, floral, long, structured and fine, with sure punches of blackcurrant and earth, backed by classic lead pencil and chocolate flavour. Lovely mix of elegance and flavour.

Jancis Robinson MW

his Lafite-managed property seems to go from strength to strength and this was, for its standing, the most impressive wine tasted at Lafite. Big, serious, essence of Cabernet (75 per cent Sauvignon, three per cent Franc for the first time) nose. Really bright, deep, glossy, healthy colour. Lovely balance. Tannins extremely well hidden. Velvety. Dry finish. The reverse of a wine whose appeal lies only on ripe sweetness. Very correct, perhaps very slightly willowy, but beautifully perfumed. Almost opulently full on the palate. Lovely for relatively early drinking. Charming. After my tasting winemaker Charles Chevalier called it 'the wine that speaks to me most this vintage'. Score: 17/20
