Lot #25. Lafite Rothschild 1981

Description: Consists of 8 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 91 RP.
". . . It is capable of holding for another two decades. It reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth, this medium ruby/garnet-colored wine displays a delicacy of fruit and sweet attack, but subtle, well-defined flavors ranging from tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake. This is a savory, soft Lafite-Rothschild that is pleasing to both the intellect and the palate." Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1, Jan 1998
Notes: Base neck or better, 4 nicked, 2 lightly scuffed capsules, 3 lightly tissue stained, 5 tissue stained, lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled, 2 nicked labels, 2 different importers.
Lot Location: Orange County
