Lafite Rothschild 2008

 

A truly great Lafite, but available at a veritable snip compared to other top vintages.

“…aromas of high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, earth, cedar and asphalt. Full, rich and stunningly concentrated, I doubt it is inferior to the 2010, just more classic as well as slightly more forward and a degree weaker in alcoholic potency” – Robert Parker
