Lafite Rothschild 2008, 750mL (WA98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Lafite Rothschild

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: Pauillac
Producer: Lafite Rothschild
Condition: OWC

WA98
Rated 98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 should have been purchased before it began to soar in value because of the significance of the number 8 in the Chinese culture (denoting good luck). Representing 40% of the production, this blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc offers aromas of high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, earth, cedar and asphalt. Full, rich and stunningly concentrated, I doubt it is inferior to the 2010, just more classic as well as slightly more forward and a degree weaker in alcoholic potency (12.5% versus 13.5%). The 2008 should be relatively drinkable in 6-10 years as it is already showing remarkable complexity and breed, and will last for 30-35 years...at the minimum. ` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate.
