Château Lafite Rothschild 1990 Pauillac 1er Cru Classé (1 heavily stained label, different importer) 3 bottles "Interestingly, a bottle of 1990 Lafite Rothschild I pulled from my cellar for a video blog on my web site was still buttoned down, tight, and even with extended decanting was not showing as much as I would have hoped. However, a bottle tasted, of all places, in Seoul, Korea in February, was only a few points short of perfection. That amazing performance motivated me to pull another bottle out of my cellar and follow it over the course of two days. Sure enough, by the second day the wine was roaring from the glass. The 1990 Lafite has turned out far better than my early assessment." (96pts WA) 「......我為了給我的網站拍攝影像網誌(即視頻博客),從酒窖中拿出一瓶1990拉菲,但這瓶酒仍然保守拘謹,就算我把醒酒的時間延長了,其表現最終也不如我所預期。但有趣的是,到了二月,我在韓國首爾所嘗到的一瓶卻距離完美僅僅只差幾分。這令人驚喜的表現使我禁不住再從酒窖裡抽出第二瓶,並且讓它醒了兩天。果然在第二天,這佳釀彷彿在酒杯裡咆哮,叫人眼前一亮,證明這1990年的拉菲實際上是比我之前的評估出色得多。」(《葡萄酒倡導家》Robert Parker評分:96)
