2001 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Bordeaux- 94 pts!
The 2001 Lafite Rothschild's deep saturated plum/purple color is accompanied by lead pencil liqueur-like notes intermixed with sweet red and black currants plums and cedar. This blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5% Merlot is a classic example of Lafite. Extremely elegant medium-bodied with intense concentration richness and sweet tannin it appears to be on a rapid evolutionary track at least in comparison to recent Lafite vintages that have been far more backward and powerful. The classy 2001 should be at its finest between 2007-2020. RP
