The famous Château Lafite-Rothschild, famed for its almost unrivalled first growth Pauillac, does well to perform in the toughest of years and this wine proves their consistency. According to Jamie Goode (of
"...the 1971s have consistently been undervalued. Thirty years on, only the best of the vintage will still be at anything like their peak. But its worth remembering that back in '71 Bordeaux wines were still made for long ageing. Yields have become considerably higher in recent years, and its arguable that even the best properties no longer make such long-lived wines. Very attractive nose: full, complex and cedary, with spicy, gravelly notes. This leads to a firm, structured palate with great density and fine-grained, chalky tannins. Long, spicy finish..."

James Suckling of Wine Spectator describes it as having "an aroma like an aged Burgundy, with cherry and spice; flavour is mature, soft, very elegant."
