Château Lafite Rothschild 2008
It is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc. Drink now – 2045.
It has a deep color with little ageing on the rim. On the nose there is ample fruit, blackberry and bilberry with notes of pencil lead and sage. The palate is well balanced with fine grain tannin and good density. There is just a touch of brown sugar and sage towards the finish.
