Region, Subregion, Country:
A wonderful dense and shiny color. An expressive nose full of beautiful red and smoked aromas. Straightforward and very well structured, dense and lingering aftertaste in evolution. A very well and lively wine with a pleasant silky ending.
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.
