(05-2018) Assemblage de 81 % de cabernet sauvignon et de 19 % de merlot, le Lafite Rothschild 1998 est d'un grenat profond avec un soupçon de brique et de magnifiques notes de bois de santal, de crème de cassis, de viandes fumées, de poivre noir et de garrigue avec des touches de chargrill, d'herbes séchées et de viande hachée. tarte. Mi-corsé, doux et moelleux en bouche, il a des tonnes de saveurs savoureuses et de confiture de prune qui remplissent la bouche et une très longue finale savoureuse. Délicieux maintenant, il devrait se conserver encore 15 à 20 ans.
