1996. Uncorked at 10 am, serve at 7 pm. No aroma at all. Nothing and nothing. As usual ending, lafite blend sprite which is very refined and enjoyable. Toss.

I have been surprised more than once over how certain vintages of Lafite can seem muted for a long time and then miraculous bounce back and show fantastic at 30+ years.
That being said I doubt this will ever reach the 98-100 range for me....
(1995 enjoyed a few months ago was in a different league).

Really beautiful right now, it's still showing great fruit intensity but all the development you'd expect of this world-class wine.

hard to say who is more excited: the ‪#‎Lafite‬ or the ‪#‎lamb‬- twas big and rich with an explosive nose showing gorgeous black fruit and a pleasing notes of licorice. Its finish goes for miles with sweet-seeming fruit and talcum-like tannins that coat your palate. A beauty that has decades of life left.

Really showing secondary character beautifully while still retaining freshness. Ripe and balanced. Still full of fruit with a long way to go. Tasting sanguine and iron-rich on the back-palate with dried cassis and leather up front.
