The 1996 Château Lafite Rothschild is comprised of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It was a complicated vintage from which only 38% of the crop was deemed of sufficient quality for use in the final blend but the result is spectacular. It is an extremely powerful and imposingly tannic Lafite that is only just beginning to emerge into its prime drinking phase but, with significant decanting, unfurls to reveal crisply defined and complex fruits, with delicious savoury nuances. Undoubtedly a long-haul proposition, this has at least another two decades of potential longevity and will surely only get better.
