    Ch. Lafite is back to its very best in 2016; the embodiment of elegance and finesse. Subtle aromas of redcurrant and cassis play on the nose. It is deep and rich on the palat,e but nevertheless there is an incredible, lacy freshness to the wine. Fine, svelte tannins and a ribbon of shallow acidity nit the glass together. The wine is long, as you would expect, with a cashmere finish. Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 92%, Merlot 8%

    Even stronger and more toned than the excellent 2015, this Lafite shows incredible power yet also finesse. Full-bodied, superfine and chewy wine. Muscular yet agile. Goes on for minutes. Stunning. Perhaps the greatest Lafite since the legendary 1959?

    The 2016 Lafite Rothschild is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, with 15% of the press wine contributing to the blend this year. Deep purple-black in color, it slowly reveals the most gorgeous perfume of kirsch, lilacs, black raspberries and warm blackcurrants with underlying nuances of cigar box, rose hip tea, cloves, licorice and pencil lead plus a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied and built like a brick house with a firm yet beautifully ripe, finely pixelated tannic backbone and seamless freshness supporting the amazing intensity of black fruits and floral layers, it finishes very long and provocatively perfumed.
