Château Lafite-Rothschild 1989

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 12.5° Château Lafite-Rothschild Château Lafite-Rothschild 1989 1033/89
  • Parker : 90
  • J. Robinson : 18,5
Wine Advocate-Parker :
As I suspected, the 1989 and 1990 vintages of Lafite-Rothschild have gone dormant. Both wines were among the more closed, backward examples in my blind tasting. The 1989 Lafite is also outstanding, but closed, with the tannin more elevated, and the wine so stubbornly reticent as to make evaluation almost impossible. Lafite's 1989 was far more easy to taste and understand several years ago. It appears to have gone completely to sleep. This medium ruby-colored, medium-bodied wine reveals new oak in the nose, and a spicy finish. It is a quintessentially elegant, restrained, understated style of Lafite. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.;2006 - 2025
