1993 CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1993

The alternation of good weather and rain during the 1993 harvest, precipitated the fermentation of the grapes, but the concentration of tannins remained good. The harvest was completed in sunny weather.
Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1993 is a well-balanced wine with good ageing potential. The fine and discreet nose reveals a good harmony. This premier cru classé has an intense and splendid color.

Jeannie Cho Lee

(03-2016) Lean on the palate with a nose of dried herbs, green tea leaves and cedar. There is no greenness from the rainy vintage and no bitterness. This is by no means an powerful or intense wine but there is plenty of charm and it is ready to enjoy. Delicious with steak and much better than I expected.

(02-1997) Because Lafite-Rothschild (1) tends to lack the weight of many wines of the northern Medoc, and (2) is never a flashy, ostentatious style of wine, it is often more difficult to evaluate when young than some of its neighbors. A successful wine for Lafite, this dark rubypurple-colored 1993 is tightly-wound, medium-bodied, with a closed set of aromatics that reluctantly reveal hints of sweet blackcurrant fruit, weedy tobacco, and lead pencil scents. Polished and elegant, with Lafite's noble restraint, this is an excellent, classy, slightly austere wine.

(01-1996) Very polished and well-crafted black cherry, toast, earth and mineral flavors, all in nice proportions. Medium body, supple tannins.
