Ch. Lafite Rothschild

1990 Ch. Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac

$7,980 HKD

Bottle / Red

96 points -- The 1990 Lafite has turned out far better than my early assessment. While it still possesses some firmness, and performs like a late adolescent in terms of its evolution, it boasts gorgeous aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, cassis, and lead pencil shavings. The explosive aromas are followed by a fleshy, full-bodied wine that should hit its peak in 5-8 years, and last for 25-30 more.

Drinking Window: 2014 to 2044
