Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2011, Pauillac, France
PRESS: Wine Enthusiast - 96 points. "The wine shows the power typical of a Lafite but within the context of the fruity 2011 vintage. The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is lifted by so much ripe black currant and berry fruits. At the back, the wine has a more brooding, dark character that suggests great aging potential. Drink this wine from 2019."
