Dense and opaque in the glass. With coaxing, aromas of sweet cassis, blackcurrant leaf and wet gravel reluctantly emerge. The initial impression is one of cool, fresh ripe fruit. This is so streamlined, rich and dense (perhaps more so than many young Lafite of the last decade) and has staggering purity. A textural style, on account of silken, round tannins and seamless, with pure fruit of soft-skinned blackcurrant, allied to notes of tobacco leaf and graphite. There is a racy, focused linear nature to this vintage, with concentration gradually building across the palate. Long, refined and driven, this is a bold Lafite with considerable power, yet always retaining hallmark refinement. Just how great this is, time will tell.
