Winemaker's Notes

"A strong case can be made that this is the finest Duhart produced since the 1982. The color is a saturated dark ruby/purple.

It reflects the increased attention Lafite's administrator, Charles Chevalier, has been giving this nearby estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020."
-The Wine Advocate
