Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) A deep bouquet of dark fruit and liquorice. The palate is full-bodied and already expressive, but then becomes tighter, expressing power and exuberance. The youth of this Lafite does not hide its energy, but the distinctive elegance and complexity are already there!

    Obv classic but for the price I'd pass. At this price point the earth should move. Not memorable
