2001 Château Lafite Rothschild
International Wine CellarBright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry, cedar, coconut, minerals, lead pencil, chocolate and tobacco leaf. Juicy, lively and penetrating, with sharply delineated flavors of blackberry, raspberry and rose petal. Boasts the classic inner-mouth energy of this great first growth, but also grew increasingly silky with extended aeration. Finishes with tongue-coating tannins and superb lift.
Wine.comBrick red color, with garnet tinges, shiny and limpid. Aromas of black currant, slightly wooded taste with notes of vanilla. Good attack inmouth, well balanced and neat. Fine tannins at the end.
