Tasting Note:

Very closed, a dark abyss, squid ink and coal. Introvert, as ever. On the palate, there’s a floral element on the finish which provides a flourish after taut layers of minerals and fine cabernet fruit – very very delicate yet persistent tannic weave, like the finest linen. The entire weave of this wine seems so fine that its hard to see into, but that’s not a bad thing, it has simply been made with much precision, lovely freshness underpinning flavours that are for now very much on the savoury side, with pippy, early autumn blackberry tang bringing a sense of life and lift. While there’s huge power here, as evidenced by the length on the finish, it is handled with great balance and poise. Feels like a wine that knows it’s going to be great, but doesn’t need to shout about it yet. A truly outstanding Lafite!
