TASTING NOTES

"The 2001 Lafite-Rothschild is a damn impressive follow-up to the 2000. It has a healthy garnet core, showing little sign of maturity. The bouquet offers blackberry, melted tar, cedar and a pinch of dried herbs that might not deliver the clarity of the finest Lafites, yet just seems to meliorate with aeration, offering complementary scents of iris with time. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple tannins, and a mélange of red and black fruit. I notice a touch of glycerin towards the second half, almost candied towards the precise finish of wild strawberry, graphite and a hint of black truffle. I admire the cohesiveness and crescendo of the 2001 Lafite-Rothschild. It should give drinkers 20 or 30 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted at the Lafite-Rothschild 150th anniversary dinner at the estate." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Stick your nose in this and it says something?"I am special." Deep and generous aromas of blackberries, fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a superlong finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater." Wine Spectator

"Looks pretty evolved at the rim. Surprisingly evolved but it suggests it can last too. Excitingly nervy in Haut-Brion style. Not forced. Lovely lusciousness and readability. Could drink this already. Great finesse." JancisRobinson.com
