International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($130-$175) Bright, dark ruby-red. Subdued but pure aromas of currant, plum, minerals, graphite, and sexy, coconutty oak; showed a floral note with aeration. Extremely suave, fine-grained and concentrated, with a strong spine of acidity. Finishes firmly tannic, subtle and very long. This should develop slowly.

Lively and racy and readable and Lafite-like? Racy with green-apples character and admirably long. This still seems to have been the most successful Pauillac first growth in this uncharming vintage. Perhaps because it is not too tough or dense?

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 158

A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black currants, plums, and crushed rocks/mineral. Wonderfully pure, dense, with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit, definition, and a long finish, this is a brilliant, elegant Lafite Rothschild that builds incrementally in the mouth and has more power and density than it initially seems.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Bubbling over with crushed berries, currants and spices, with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied, with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy. 16,000 cases made.

Mute, firm, inexpressive. After several hours: rich, heady cassis concentrate note, little perceptible oak. The wine just swallowed the oak. Hint of heat; staggering finish.
