Description

Chateau Lafite Rothschild ‘Carruades de Lafite’ Pauillac 2017 in 75cl.

Carraudes de Lafite is the second wine of the iconic Chateau Lafite Rothschild. 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.

The blend is 50 to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30 to 50% Merlot and sometimes a little Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot depending on vintage. The wine is aged 16 to 20 months, 80% in oak barrels (10% new).

Annual production approximately 20,000 cases.

The 2017 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes

Tasting notes (at bottling):

Beautiful dark red colour. Seductive nose, offering a delightful aromatic palette that mingles notes of liquorice, berries and tobacco. On the palate, the attack is pleasant and, considering its youth, this is a remarkably soft, full-bodied wine. It remains well-balanced throughout the tasting, ending with a long, harmonious finish.
