1992 CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1992

The weather conditions of the 1992 vintage were difficult. The harvest took place under cloudy and somewhat rainy conditions. Nevertheless, the grapes were harvested in excellent condition.
Château Lafitte 1992 is a wine with good levels of tannins, a balanced structure and well marked aromas. The nose is spicy and woody. This classified growth has a magnificent purple color.

Wine Spectator April - 1995
Wine Spectator
A real achievement for the vintage, boasting plenty of fruit, tobacco and dark chocolate character. Full-bodied and velvety; impressive richness of ripe tannins.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
In 1992 only 36% of the harvest was utilized, resulting in a deeply-colored wine with a nearly exceptional cedary, chocolatey, cassis-character, medium body, surprisingly concentrated flavors, as well as the classic Lafite aromatic profile. If discounted, readers should take the opportunity to experience Lafite's finesse in a softer, more precocious vintage. The 1992 Lafite should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 12-20.
