2005 Château Lafite-Rothschild, 1er Cru Pauillac

2005 Château Lafite-Rothschild, 1er Cru Pauillac

It comes as little suprise that Charles Chevalier's team crafted an intense, regal Lafite in this outstanding vintage. Dense in the glass, the restrained aromas hint at blackcurrants seasoned with a little cedar. There is a truly awesome sense of purity too with seamless texture and layer upon layer of creamy fruit - this is not short of either volume or power. The structure and grippy tannins signal the potential for a long-lived wine. Remarkably fine and unusually concentrated, a wine of the vintage.
