Château Lafite Rothschild 1999 - magnum (1.5 l)

Tasting notes

"The 1999 Lafite Rothschild  is both elegant and intensely flavored, and almost diaphanous in its layers that unfold with no heaviness. An opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by a complex bouquet of lead pencil, graphite, cedar, creme de cassis, toast, and vanilla."
