1998 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Bordeaux- 98 pts!
A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot this wine represents only 34% of Lafite's total harvest. In a less than perfect Medoc vintage it has been spectacular since birth putting on more weight and flesh over the last year. This opaque purple-colored 1998 is close to perfection. The spectacular nose of lead pencil smoky mineral and black currant fruit soars majestically from the glass. The wine is elegant yet profoundly rich revealing the essence of Lafite's character. The tannin is sweet and the wine is spectacularly layered yet never heavy. The finish is sweet super-rich yet impeccably balanced and long (50+ seconds). RP
