Before you read further, please understand I am a NOVICE wine collector who is confused. (So what else is new?) Here is the dilema and question.
I was in a local discounter and found a rack of wine labelled Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2001. The label also says, "bottled exclusively for Chalone by Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild (Lafite)". In another place on the label it says Imported by The Chalone Wine Group - Napa, CA.
It is for sale for $22.99. A search on Wine Spectator says that based on a barrel test, their rating will be 95 to 100 on a 2001 Lafite Rothschild.
This sounds too good to be true. Am I really looking at a 2001 Lafite Rothschild Pauillac for $22.99???????? Or maybe I should ask another way. Is $22.99 a fair price?
Thanks for the help.
