Château Lafite Rothschild, Paulliac 1988

Lafite 1988 the one

Imperial ruby.  Has a monumental diffidence about her, a lioness in winter, a product of this buttoned-up vintage.  Telltale vanilla crème flavors with a slate-y char and the toastiness is first-rate.  The fruit is regal and magnetic with solidity and reserve.  Silvery-metallic with origami-fine detail at the end.  Will probably always remain aloof and will carry on for ages.  Now – 2030.
