2006 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Bordeaux - 97 Pts!!
One of the fabulous surprises although I had suggested last year that it could jump in quality of my tastings the 2006 Lafite Rothschild is a great great wine made from a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon 16% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. When I tasted it from barrel it reminded me of their successful 1988 but it is dramatically superior to that vintage. Frankly it may turn out to be as good as the 2005 which in all of Bordeaux is a far greater vintage than 2006. Lafite's severe selection process (42% made it into the grand vin) resulted in a full-bodied wine boasting an extraordinary perfume of charcoal truffles lead pencil shavings and sensationally sweet ripe black currant and cedar notes. A wine of extraordinary intensity texture and depth with silky tannins as well as awesome concentration this has turned out to be a remarkable Lafite Rothschild that should be drinkable much earlier than the 2005 but age for three decades.
