Broadbent (in 1986) Delicious, and its delicate, slightly medicinal Pauillac bouquet developed gloriously over two hours, half in decant and then in glass. Although losing some colour it can still be surprisingly deep, rich, intense even. Bouquet still very forthcoming and fragrant; dryish, perfect weight, crisp, slightly citrus flavour, good length. A beauty. *****
MWH: This wonderful example of Lafite Rothschild 1955 has a level at the bottom shoulder and is priced accordingly. Excellent label.
