CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1996
Pauillac. 1er Cru Classé
u. 2 x bn. 2 x scraped labels.
The bouquet is classic Pauillac with pencil shavings and sous-bois infusing the black fruit, masculine and a little aloof, yet focused and very well delineated. The palate is very well balanced with crisp blackberry and boysenberry fruit, spicier than I recollect, a crescendo of flavors so that it seems understated at first but fans out with a sense of confidence towards the finish. Tasted July 2016. Drink: 2020-2050 WA 98
