International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($168-$230) Medium ruby-red. Scented nose offers plum, mocha, licorice, graphite, flowers and tobacco. Suave, silky and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth aromatic character and energy. Perfumed flavors of redcurrant, minerals and cedar. Finishes very long and firm, with terrific grip for this mostly gentle vintage.

[CS 90.5%, M 9%, PV 0.5%. Picking here was over by 14 oct, considerably earlier than at, say, Latour and Margaux.] Excellent depth of purplish crimson. Something quite sweetly aromatic on the nose ? violets? vanilla? Rather more solid than I would have expected from Lafite in a year like this. Definitely earth-bound. Very solid, and lower in acidity than I would expect. While, unlike Mouton, it?s obviously Pauillac, it?s less obviously Lafite than in some other years. Very dry finish. Very correct but reticent.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 171

This beautiful, stunningly dense purple-colored effort (includes about 90% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers up precise notes of graphite, black cherries, cassis, scorched earth, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied with fabulous fruit, impressive richness, refreshing acidity, and sweet tannin, this beauty should be approachable in 4-5 years, and last for three decades. As Lafite Rothschilds go, this is somewhat of a sleeper vintage.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Intense aromas of currant, coffee, toasty oak and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins, great mouthfeel and a long finish. A refined Lafite. 22,080 cases made.

Elegant and classically polished in pure Lafite style. The scents of crushed berries, sweet tobacco, spice box and cedar had a lovely lift to bring great introduction to the palate. Although this is not a blockbuster of a wine, it is silky, refined, well rounded and a presentation of perfect proportion. Like a ballerina in Swan Lake that simply can'tbe imitated, nor can the strength be measured in size. Commendable.
