Château Lafite-Rothschild 1985

Estimate: US$6,000 - US$8,500
Price realised:  US$6,875
Lot number 16, Views: 20

Château Lafite-Rothschild 1985 Pauillac, 1er cru classé Slightly worn capsules, one wrinkled, bin-soiled labels, one damaged and stained, one with scotch tape affixed, one missing import label, two labels re-attached Levels into neck Tasting Note: Tasted at the château, the 1985 Lafite-Rothschild was the best example of this wine that I have tasted a dozen or so times. It has a beautiful nose that is just classic Lafite. It is still fresh yet understated, stately even, with tobacco and cedar-tinged red berry fruit. It is not a powerful bouquet, but there is something...magnetic about it. The palate is still youthful with fine tannin, like the nose, understated yet very well balanced. The acidity here is perfectly judged with an almost nonchalant finish. You almost miss its virtues - it is just so self-effacing and insouciant. Just a really lovely Lafite-Rothschild at the peak of its powers. 93 RP 6 magnums per lot
