Château Lafite-Rothschild 1995
6 magnums per lot
Château Lafite-Rothschild 1995 Pauillac, 1er cru classé In original wooden three-magnum cases Tasting note: Tasting note: First noted and showing well at a major pre-sale tasting, including a dozen top '95's in New York, Nov '97. Two years later, at the MW tasting of '95's: deep and richly coloured, sweaty tannins and considerable depth; sweet, good fruit, soft mid-palate, distinctly tannic. Tasted blind, one of my top marks in a flight of first growth '95's, the Lafite was still youthful looking; deep, classic, rich, opening up well; sweet, good extract and fruit, the tannin and acidity more integrated. Elegant, firm, good future. Last noted Nov 2001 **(***) Now-2025 M.B. 6 magnums per lot
