Michael Schuster


Understated nose, a subtle yet richly glass-filling combination of freshly ripe fruit and Médoc gravel; a lovely, complex perfume; a perfectly balanced, fresh, sweet, discreetly concentrated yet rich, middleweight claret, with a notably fine-textured tannin; freshly sweet to taste, clearly marked by fine gravel aromas; long, gently racy, subtle, scented, and complex, and with a fine, long persistence echoing all the characteristics of nose and palate. Effortlessy refined Lafite of great harmony. 2020–40+.
