    Estimate

    Château Lafite-Rothschild 1995
    Pauillac, 1er cru classé
    Tasting note: First noted and showing well at a major pre-sale tasting,
    including a dozen top '95's in New York, Nov '97. Two years later, at
    the MW tasting of '95's: deep and richly coloured, sweaty tannins and
    considerable depth; sweet, good fruit, soft mid-palate, distinctly
    tannic. Tasted blind, one of my top marks in a flight of first growth
    '95's, the Lafite was still youthful looking; deep, classic, rich,
    opening up well; sweet, good extract and fruit, the tannin and acidity
    more integrated. Elegant, firm, good future. Last noted Nov 2001
