Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Delectable Wine
9.2

Winemaker Eric Kohler recalled the 1999 Lafite-Rothschild as being born in a "sad summer." Personally, I have liked this First Growth since I first tasted it in barrel. Now 20 years old, it is beginning to show a little bricking on the rim. The bouquet is clean and detailed, with black currant, raspberry, melted tar and cedar developing in the glass (but less of the allspice that I observed in previous bottles). The palate is medium-bodied and maybe more compact than expected, possibly due to this being ex-cellar. While not a concentrated Lafite-Rothschild, it is very harmonious and elegant, brushed with a subtle pepperiness toward the finish and a tang of dried orange peel on the aftertaste. Delightful. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the estate. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2019) — 3 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Réserve Nicolas Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Smells like aged Bordeaux. Tar, cedar, tobacco, wet mulch. Starting it’s downward slope. This bottle not showing a lot. Tanins still grip but weak on fruit. Length is good but no real power or finesse here. She’s a bit over the hill. But she’s still got class. — a month ago
