Deep and intense purple colour. Complex nose marked by aromas of red and black fruits, elevated by fine spicy notes. Ample and dense on the palate with an extremely balanced, harmonious and sapid finish. This is a dense, tight, very elegant Lafite, with very present tannins, good length, it still needs to firm up, but the depth is there with an admirable uprightness.
This is not a wine to drink on the young side, as usually far too tannic and reserved in its youth.
Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 3-6 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.
Serving temperatures can be a matter of personal preference. Nonetheless, we kindly recommend you to serve it at around 16-18°C. This temperature range allows this fine wine to express its full range of aromas and flavors.
