This is just beautiful, probably at pick. 2002 is underrated here and Lafite's strict selection allows for a quintessential Lafite combination of power and breadth with refinement and true elegance. That's what we drink wine for.

We got to taste the 1999 vintage last night, chewy and meaty and oh so special. Thanks to the Jonas Brothers for leaving some in the bottle 😹

Many 61s from this collection. Lafite as always ethereal elegant Burgundian.

Double decanted Big difference between '03 and '04 (both equally amazing). '04 more fruit forward than '03 on the nose. Boysenberry, blackberry, spices w/ clove cinnamon mix. Delightfully velvety, structured and balanced.

Wet earth, forest floor with over ripe black berry and black currants. Spectacular bottle, however tough to follow DRC La Tache.

If I could give this 20 points would. My WOTN and the best wine I've had all year. This is in its sweet spot now. That perfect moment when the wine is showing its best. Thank you @Bob Bressler

This is the second bottle. More concentration, density with a broader stance. Drinking younger than the first. Hard to decide, but I give a nudge to the first bottle for its beauty and delicacy.
