Wine Advocate

96 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, the 1998 Lafite Rothschild is deep garnet with a hint of brick and gorgeous notions of sandalwood, crème de cassis, smoked meats, black pepper and garrigue with touches of chargrill, dried herbs and mincemeat pie. Medium-bodied, soft and plush on the palate, it has tons of mouth-filling savory and plum preserves flavors and a very long, savory finish. Delicious now, it should keep for 15-20 more years." 05/18

James Suckling

95 Points, James Suckling, Wine Specator: "Amazing aromas of crushed blackberries, toasted oak and currant, spices. Really a great nose. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Superb. Best wine of the Médoc, without a doubt.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2011. 21,665 cases made." 06/09
