1982 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Bordeaux - 100 pts! OWC 12 pak

Perfect still in tissue paper!!Still extraordinarily backward and youthful this large-scaled (massive by Lafite's standards) wine should prove to be the greatest Lafite made after the 1953 and 1959. It continues to offer an exceptionally intense compelling bouquet of herbs black currants vanilla lead pencil and cedar. The wine reveals considerable tannin as well as amazing atypical power and concentration for Lafite. The hallmark elegance of this wine has not been compromised because of the vintage's tendency to turn out powerful and unctuously-textured thick juicy wines. Rich full and still youthful and unyielding this should prove to be a fabulous Lafite-Rothschild - but only for those readers prepared to wait until 2003-2005. It should easily last through the first three decades of the next century. A potential 100-point wine! RP
