some La Tache and Lafite

Tasted a wonderful DRC 2001 La Tache last night after pouring for a wine dinner.  Still way too young for me but nice fruit and a very stunning finish, lasting more than a couple of minutes in the mouth with beautiful rich red fruits. wowwww
Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1986
Opened this first growth, which happened to be finely corked... not extremely unapealing though for a not so fine vintage in bordeaux..
deep deep forest aromas, a little too musty on the palate...but not a total loss of fruits and acidity..
opened a second bottle which was much more explosive with fresher fruit, acidity and complexity, much more enjoyable!
afterall we are talking about a first growth here.. jesus....
