Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1er Cru Classe 1982

This large-scaled (massive by Lafite's standards) wine should prove to be the greatest Lafite made after the 1959. It continues to offer an exceptionally intense, compelling bouquet of herbs, black currants, vanilla, lead pencil, and cedar. The wine reveals considerable tannin as well as amazing, atypical power and concentration for Lafite. The hallmark elegance of this wine has not been compromised because of the vintage's tendency to turn out powerful and unctuously textured, thick, juicy wines.Rich, full and still youthful, this has turned out to be a fabulous Lafite-Rothschild, and a modern-day clone of the 1959. 100 Points/Drink 2004-2040" - Robert Parker
