96% Cabernet Sauvignon , 3.5% Merlot , 0.5% Petit Verdot. Very full plum , the nose is reticent , mysterious here too , subtle notes of floral content , very pure , the palate again very cool , tight and poised , this is layered for sure , there is lots of nuance here all very faint but the multiples ripple on the finish , it hums tension , really fine for the vintage. Tightly wound and honed. Very fine tannins.

Rating : 94-96/100

This is very tight and tannic with lots of blackcurrant and sweet-tobacco character. Firm and powerful tannin texture sets this up for a long and chewy finish, yet it remains very compact and polished. It's a wine that possesses all the hallmarks of Lafite — everything from flavors to structure.

Rating : 97-98/100

The 2017 Lafite-Rothschild had been blended in mid-March, a couple of weeks prior to my visit, therefore it was important to let this settle and aerate. Moreover, I returned on my final day in Bordeaux mid-April for a second reading. It feels very aloof at first, even a little green, although that ebbs away with time in the glass to reveal pure blackberry and bilberry fruit, touches of brine, cedar and graphite. Patience discloses a really quite sublime array of aromas. The palate is where all the action is: filigree tannin, very well judged acidity, harmonious and poised with a silky smooth finish that glides across the mouth. It does not possess enormous length but it is very precise and, for want of a better, less clichéd word, classic from start to finish. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Rating : 95-97/100
