    Château Lafite-Rothschild 1924
    Pauillac, 1er cru classé
    Slightly corroded embossed Château capsules. Bin-soiled and damaged labels, one badly damaged. Levels: one top, one upper, one mid/upper and two mid-shoulder
    Tasting note: When it is at its best, one of my favourite old vintages of Lafite, with all the lightness of spirit, charm and elegance of, say, a 1953. A super 6-star bottle from the Dillon family’s cellar in New Jersey. This, I decided, was Lafite at its most exquisitely delicate best. Sheer perfection. M.B.
