Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5++

Tasted blind. Deep ruby colour. Succulent, spicy and earthy nose. Very plump and full. Intensely fruited on the palate, but there is a gravelly richness and savour to match. Focused, smoky and dense, yet very vibrant with acidity. This is elegant, with a pure and effortless intensity. Still building momentum on the finish, it will reward patience. (TP) [16/09/2021]

Robert Parker – 97

Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Lafite Rothschild is deep garnet-purple colored. It opens slowly, cautiously with restrained notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries, warm blackcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by emerging notions of smoked meats, fragrant earth, crushed rocks and lilacs with touches of cast-iron pan and Marmite toast. Medium-bodied, the palate is deceptively light and quite ethereal on entry, growing in the mouth to reveal elegant layers of energetic red and black fruits with tons of savory accents. Framed by exquisitely ripe, wonderfully fine-grained tannins, it has exhilarating freshness and a very long, hypnotically perfumed finish. On a final note, the alcohol here is a jaw-dropping 12.5%, which is something of a miracle considering the ripeness of the Cabernet. A total head-turner, I cannot wait to follow the development of this wine! [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 24/02/2020]
