Tasting Note:

Very deep purple, but not opaque in appearance; an elegant nose of blackcurrant fruit with blackthorn, overlaid with a creamy richness. Plenty of depth on the nose, with developing aromas of lead pencil shavings, minerals and liquorice, even a hint of crushed violets. The tannins are very smooth, with vitality and class, the wine's character building up in many layers of graphite, minerals and complex flavours. Persistent and balanced, with classic Lafite cigar tones on the finish. An iron fist in a velvet glove.
