Lafite Rothschild 1982, 375ml (WA97+, ST95+, WS97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Lafite Rothschild

375ml

Vintage: 1982
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: Pauillac
Producer: Lafite Rothschild
Condition: vts

WA97+, ST95+, WS97
Rated 97+ points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `This is a denser version of the 1990 that stylistically reminds me of what the young 1959 probably tasted like. Still backward with a deep ruby/plum color revealing only a touch of lightening at the edge, the wine offers up an extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity. With 6-8 hours decanting in a closed decanter, it will offer beautiful drinking, but it needs another 5-8 years to reach full maturity. It is capable of lasting 50-60 years. This classic Lafite is not as fat and concentrated as the 1982 Latour, nor as complex or concentrated as the 1982 Mouton Rothschild, but it is a winner all the same. Release price: ($350.00/case)` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
