Lot #39. Château Lafite Rothschild 1990

Description: Consists of 1 imperial (6L).
Score: 98 FM.
"Robust ruby-garnet color, violet highlights, and a subtly lightening rim. Fine cassis notes, with plum, tobacco, a hint of truffle, raisin, and candied orange. Full-bodied on the palate, with a complex texture, elegant body, focused and firm tannins, red cherry fruit, violet, and suede; shows richness and finesse, with good persistence and fruity berry notes in the finish; great potential for continued development."
