Tasting Notes

90
Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

The 1976 Lafite clearly stands far above the crowd in the vintage. A beautiful bouquet of seductive cedarwood, spices, and ripe fruit precedes a very concentrated, darly colored wine, with great length and texture. Some amber is just beginnig to appear at the edge. Anticipated maturity: now.

A Possible Legend CandidateThe 1976 is an interesting prospect.
