91 points Wine Spectator: "Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character. (JS)" (10/1994) K&L Notes: 90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and comp...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has just begun its slide down the slippery slope. It was an outstanding La Conseillante that drank beautifully young. Once the baby fat began to fade in the mid-nineties, the wine was less enticing, although still an excellent, and perhaps outstanding if drunk from larger format bottles (i.e., magnum). The wine possesses a deep ruby color with some lightening at the edge. The toasty, cherry and raspberry-scented nose is followed by smoky, roasted herb, sweet cherry and raspberry flavors judiciously infused with s...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Quite exceptional, the 1981 Lafaurie-Peyraguey exhibits ripe apricot aromas, a rich, chewy, viscous texture, good acidity, and a long, sweet, fat finish. This wine displays considerable botrytis, and is clearly one of the top efforts in this vintage. (RP)" (12/1997) K&L Notes: According to Robert Parker: "Quite exceptional, the 1981 Lafaurie-Peyraguey exhibits ripe apricot aromas, a rich, chewy, viscous texture, good acidity, and a long, sweet, fat finish. This wine displays considerable botrytis, and is clearly one of t...

92 points John Gilman: "For drinking at the present time, it is hard not to love the more middleweight vintage of 1981 at Pichon-Lalande. The wine is at its absolute apogee of peak drinkability at the present time, wafting from the glass in a beautiful and quite classic aromatic blend of sweet cassis, cigar wrapper, gravelly soil tones, a touch of chipotle pepper, cigar ash and a whisper of merlot-derived sweet herb in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and utterly suave on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, mel...

Bid on this 10-bottle lot of 1981 Latour, Pauillac (OWC - 93DC) in original wood. Decanter: "Often the measure of a great terroir and producer are the so-called off vintages, which frequently surprise and delight to punch far above their weight. The 81 Latour is a classic case in point. From an unheralded year, this particular bottle had clearly been kept in fabulous condition. The youthful colour is not dissimilar to the 96 and the nose still provides plenty of primary Cabernet-based fruit (classic cassis, lead pencil and cedar) with some tertiary notes in the background. Then a lovely attack on the palate; dry with very correct blackcurrant fruit, balsam, a hint of savoury iron rust and a vein of autumnal forest floor. Gentle, melting tannins, medium weight and a clean acidic cut enable the wine to glide effortlessly across the tastebuds. The finish is harmonious, long and cries out for another bottle. In short, a textbook claret which is now at its drinking best, even more so with a
