2009 Ch. Lafite Rothschild

This dry red wine has dark purple colour. On nose it has pronounced level aromas of blackcurrant, black plum, graphite, pencil shaving, sandalwood, licorice, cedar and spice. Medium acidity, alcohol and full bodied. Tannin level is quite high but ripe and fine grained. On palate it gives quite high intensity flavours of black plum, blackberry, licorice, pencil shaving, pine wood, cedar and touch of earth and smoke. Long length with black plum finish. (96)
