Lot #43. Lafite Rothschild 1983

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
". . . classic mineral, lead pencil, cedary perfume it is renowned for possessing. A forceful wine for Lafite, it offers medium to full body and good underlying structure, particularly for a 1983. Deeper and more compelling at age ten than it has been in the past, it should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage. This [is a] terrific effort . . ." Wine Advocate #88, Aug 1993
Provenance: The Basilic Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, very lightly scuffed capsule, torn and bin soiled label.
