Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2002

Bright, deep ruby-red. Ripe, deep aromas of currant, flowers, coconut and mint. Firm and tight, with excellent cut and precision; brisk flavors of bitter cherry, berry skin and minerals. A slightly dry-edged midweight that's best today on the long, slow-building finish. Shows an intriguing late note of faded rose.

Should have written this down Sat nite. A beautiful balance of fruit and mineral. Flowing finish. Tannis were not overwhelming at all, and I barely decanted. Lafite is my favorite wine. Period.
