Lot #451. Lafite Rothschild 1959

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 99 RP.
"Tasted 9 Times With Consistent Notes . . . . The 1959 is unquestionably the greatest Lafite-Rothschild that has approached full maturity . . . . The super-aromatic bouquet of flowers, black truffles, cedar, lead pencil, and red fruits is followed by one of the most powerful and concentrated Lafites I have tasted. Medium to full-bodied, velvety-textured, rich, and pure, it is a testament to what this great estate can achieve when it hits the mark. This youthful wine will last for another 30 or more years." Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,250
