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

Fruit to go for eons. Earth, cedar, leather, more dark red fruits, great balance and story here. If you're buying Lafite, this is it.

Touch of Brett is a little distracting but ripe red fruit and integrated dusty tannins make for an interesting wine, all the better when introduced by Baron Eric.

Definitely a little touch of bret in this wine. Not my favorite vintage of this wine but still great complexity, balance and finesse.

The 2003 Lafite that I had the great privilege to taste at a dinner party last week lived up to all the hype. Sinewy, earthy & elegant- I would love to taste this wine again in 5-10 years.

Holiday party fun: a little austere. Disappointed. Yes I know you are drinking lafitte! But nose is fantastic but fruit is a little lacking and tastes tight even after decanting. I continue to think 03 are over hyped
