1989 CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD PAUILLAC

Postby Blake Brown » Fri Dec 29, 2017 12:39 pm

1989 CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD PAUILLAC- decanted at the dinner table, perfect cork in mint condition; this had a deep dark youthful vibrant purple colour; the nose was smile producing with cedar and leather laced black currant most evident; all continued on with spicy blackberry fruit taking over and a hit of cigar box blending in as well; it coated the palate with that Lafite grace adding a tactile treat to all of the other sensory components; this was absolutely stellar and with the exception of the atypical spiciness, it was consummate Lafite; it stayed the course and was as good and generous 45 minutes later as it was in the first minute; the underlying structure and steadiness of the wine suggests it has many decades of joy to provide to those who venture beyond the cork.

Cheers,
Blake
