Saving the best ‘til last
13 June 2019

It seems that the stars have aligned for the new team at Lafite. This was apparent as we tasted through Duhart Milon and Carruades de Lafite. When we arrived at the astonishing Grand Vin, it became obvious that 2018 was destined to be one of the all-time greats from this venerable First Growth. At the first impression we were struck by the reserved nobility of the bouquet. With aeration it slowly unfurled revealing complex aromas of minerals, flowers and decadent fruits. If anything the palate was even more compelling. Swathes of gorgeously textured black fruit coated the mouth. There’s a slight firmness and austerity that is befitting of a wine of this class – it’s an aristocratic giant yet it remained compact, precise and focussed. Lisa Perrotti-Brown sums up the stupendous finish superbly. “The finish goes on, and on, and on. If this wine doesn’t get Bordeaux lovers hearts' racing, nothing will.” It is fully deserving of all the accolades it has received and can now add the crown of Justerinis’ best wine on the left bank to that list!

The chateau has release 30% less stock on the market. As such, we will have to allocate. Please send requests to your Account Manager.
