2nd wine of Château Lafite. Another courtesy of J&B. Stood up OK to venison stew for Christmas 2003. Deep red-purple colour, but even to the edge. Cedary notes over a hint of dark fruit (but I couldn’t say which). Quite balanced flavour with a decent tannic bite (but not too much) – perhaps only into early maturity? Not bad overall, though I hoped for something greater.
