From my Log. 3

1.- Chateau Duhart-Milon. 1.996. Pauillac. Full-bodied palate with rounded tannins. Medium term. Produced by Lafite (DBR) as some other wines, including the Premier Cru Classe Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
2.- Chateau Lafon-Rochet. 1996, 2001. St. Estephe. Very intense. Kind of dry. Earthy as all wines from St. Estephe. Long term.
3.- Chateau Lagrange. St. Julien. 1.994, 1995. Very rich. Superb flavor. Long term. Expensive.
4.- Carruades de Lafite Rothschild. 1994. This is the second label from Chateau Lafite Rothschild. Try it. You will not regret. Almost the same wine without the price tag. Long term.
