This is a classic, fairly restrained Lafite with delicate layers of flavours. The wine is reserved at first sip, but it does open up in the glass (after about 10 minutes) to reveal blackberries, violets and spices. This year, there are more savoury, earthy characters that may be reminiscent of 1986 in its youth. The unique characters of top properties revealed themself this year and in typical Lafite style, this wine is incredibly refined, classy, reserved and subtle.by jeannie cho lee in 2012
