1989 Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac image

(93 Points) Subtle, yet rich and decadent, offering meat, sweet berry and fresh leather on the nose. Full and very soft, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. This has so much ripe fruit. Reserved and firm, this is turning to a very fine and shy Lafite. This is fresh and structured, but still holding back. I wouldn't wait, though. '89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. -JS
