The last time we tasted at Lafite the wine was awkward and surly: blackly fruited and ferociously structured. showing none of the charm for which this chateau is so famous. Two weeks on and the wine has softened, its showing a nice bit of baby fat and the fruit has taken on a sweeter character AND it is charming! Charles Chevalier said that the final blend was only assembled a couple of weeks before the primeur tastings and agreed that it wasn't showing well but today it is wonderful, easily an 18 pointer and if it continues on its current trajectory will be among the best wines of the vintage.
