Description: Consists of 1 Double Magnum, 3L

"This is a Lafite at its peak - singing from the bottle. This is an excellent bottle and reveals a wine that is complex, layered, subtle yet intense. A gorgeous Lafite that is among the best vintages and best bottles I have ever tasted. A symphony of flavours ranging from sweet cedar, dried berries, pot pourri to sweet spices. Incredibly long finish." Jeannie Cho Lee MW, WineNote.JeannieChoLee.com, Jun 2013
