Trying '86 Lafite

Posted by hitnerwine on September 4, 2008 at 5:15 PM

I really enjoy the good stuff:

I make no denials: I adore top-quality wine!


Over the last few months, I've been fortunate enough to sample a few of the greats, and the most remarkable was the 1986 Lafite Rothschild, from Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. Such grace and charm! With sweet-fruit, mocha, and cigar box scents, the wine still had a lot of vibrancy for its age.


Actually, I sampled this wine with my classmates at George Brown College, and most of them did not seem as enthusiastic about it as I was. Oh, well --- more for me!
