2012 Château Lafite-Rothschild, 1er Cru Pauillac

A wine that needs no introduction and that has excelled this vintage. Delicate and feminine, but with an underlying power. Blended with 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot. A sweet captivating fragrance of violets, sweet ripe dark fruits, cedar wood and a little pine. Initial first taste is silk and satin layers, pure and precise, interwoven round the concentrated complex core. Tannins are so fine grained, they appear as velvet. A little minerality on the finish, gliding through to a refreshing, lingering long finish. Perfection and harmony. (Robert Parker score: 92-95)
