Description

Château Lafite Rothschild's second wine, Carruades de Lafite presents similar characteristics to the Grand Vin, but with its own personality linked to a higher proportion of Merlot and to specific plots that are used to produce Carruades.

The name comes from the Carruades plateau, a group of plots acquired in 1845 just next to the vines on the Château hilltop.

Tasting

Beautiful dark red violet colour. Very appealing nose with notes of red fruit dominated by cherry. There are also notes of tobacco, which is quite unusual at this stage of the ageing process. On the palate, the wine quickly opens up, which is often the case for Les Carruades due to its higher proportion of Merlot. It rapidly develops a full-bodied character, with exceptional balance. The complementarity between the four grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is perfect, offering a very pleasant, well-structured mid-palate. The finish brings refined, slightly salty, mineral notes. Will be at its best in 10 to 15 years, or more.
