Description:

*Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1976
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe u. eleven bottom neck or better, one very top shoulder
"The 1976 Lafite clearly stands far above the crowd in this vintage. A beautiful bouquet of seductive cedarwood, spices, and ripe fruit precedes a very concentrated, darkly colored wine, with great length and texture. Some amber is just beginning to appear at the edge. The 1976 has turned out to be the best Lafite of the '70s. It is gorgeous to drink at present. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted, 9/96." R. Parker, 93 pts. 01/98 12 bottles (owc)
Estimate $1,800-2,400
