Château Lafite Rothschild 2016 – Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

Château Lafite Rothschild 2016 – Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

The nose is fine, fresh, aromatic and elegant. It reveals slight notes of fleshy/fresh blackberry, cassis and fresh/ripe Gariguette strawberry associated with slight toasted hints, a very slight hint of almond, licorice as well as a (very) discreet hint of mocha/chocolate truffle and a very discreet salin hint (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, fresh, elegant, clean/precise and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a slight tension, straightness, a slight unctuosity as well as a beautiful finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/fresh blackberry, ripe/fresh cassis, a red berries/raspberry associated with a hint of strawberry as well as a discreet hint of licorice, oak/dark chocolate, an imperceptible hint of spices and a hint of caramelization. Good length.
