Carruades de Chateau Lafite is the 2nd label of Chateau Lafite Rothschild.

Purple red. Intense. Dark. Pretty. Net. Intense. Very fruity with a warm note. Net. Intense. Fruits in syrup and licorice. Soft attack developing on a structure a little soft very fruity and fleshy. Tannic evolution rather concentrated and tasty that leaves a tasty finish, fresh and well balanced on a complex note of violet and wood. Fine tannins. Fine and long wine with pure aromatic expression.

Carruades is the second label wine produced by Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. After fermentation and maceration, the wines are tasted, selected and put together according to their different qualities. This step is very important because this is where we make the difference between the great "Lafite" and the second wine "Carruades de Lafite". The wines are drained off into oak barrels. We use 100% new barrels for the ageing of Lafite. The year after, these same barrels will be used for the Carruades.


Good levels and provenance - slightly scuffed back labels
