...Superb definition though The palate is very harmonious, with well knit tannins. Wild strawberry (from the 33% merlot) tobacco and cedar. Unmistakably Pauillac. Overall, showing more sophistication and focus than Mouton...Slightly more opaque than the Lafite 1990. This is much mellower on the nose, minerally, graphite, cedar and some black pepper. The palate has less richness and alcohol than the 1990, superb balance and more clarity and balance. Very minerally, cedary and burnt toast. This shows lovely restraint. A lovely Lafite, one that begs to accompany some Pauillac lamb.
