Lafite Réserve Spéciale Médoc Magnum 2016, A.C. Medoc

£39.95

The Réserve Spéciale range produced by DBR Lafite stylistically reflects the classic appellations and regions of Bordeaux. This Medoc example uses fruit from several prime parcels of land in the Medoc, and is aged in old oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling. The 2016 vintage is considered a modern day classic thanks to perfect growing conditions, summarised by ideal levels of precipitation and sunshine enabling the grapes to slowly mature on the vine. The wines’ of 2016 carry elegance, balance, freshness and the potential to cellar.

Tasting notes

Developed and mature with notes of tobacco, cigar box, cedar, violets, blackberry, toast and cassis. The palate is much riper and richer than you may expect given the format. This is a juicy Medoc with layers of suave black fruit and earthy spice. Great stuff from DBR Lafite! A well priced magnum of claret from one of the very best producers, what’s not to love about that?
