Second bottle of this in four nights! Very drinkable today; needs two hour decant.

Herbaceous left bank Bordeaux. Black red fruit and olives. Tannins have smoothed out. Great wine and what you would expect from the 2nd Growth of Lafite-Rothschild.

Med + concentration which was not quite opaque. Light ruby core with salmon/orange rim. The nose was on the fresher side and only showing med intensity and complexity. Classic #leftbank nose but nothing popped out. A firm structure with med + tannin and acid. The palate was even more subdued showing medicinal red qualities. Length was med and boring. This lacked character and only time could help this wine. #chateaulafite #2ndwine #pauillac #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine
