(Lafite Rothschild) The 1945 Lafite Rothschild was unbelievable. It was a perfect bottle, with sweet and sour cherry immediately defining its nose. Cedar, musk and caramel joined the party in this open and sexy wine. The palate was fleshy yet still serious, showing all the best qualities of ’45, ie fruit, finish and balance. There were great caramel and carob flavors, along with ‘rusty nail’ and ‘paprika.’ 1945 Lafite doesn’t get much press compared to Mouton, Latour and Haut Brion in 1945, but this bottle was awesome (97).
