This violet-tinted Pauillac boasts texture. Charm and generosity dominate the nose; a distinctive trait of the 2008 Lafite-Rothschild. The wine shows great complexity despite commanding red fruit aromas. Shaking exposes that rich texture, along with the much appreciated clear-cut and neat expression. The imposing solid palate - a classic Pauillac - reveals the coherence of the structure. The delightful tannins are rounder - even more so than other thick and sunny vintages. This 2008 Lafite-Rothschild ends on a persistent and most agreeable finish. Enthusiast will without a doubt have more than one glass.
