France / 750ML / 2018

The Second Wine of the prestigious Premier Grand Cru Classe – Chateau Lafite-Rothschild – the Carruades de Lafite 2018 reflects the identity of the great terroirs of Pauillac.

The product of an "enfant terrible vintage" for the Bordeaux region, the Carruades de Lafite 2018 rewarded the work of the Chateau Lafite Rothschild technical teams. In a never-ending quest to express the great terroirs of Pauillac, Chateau Lafite Rothschild has redefined the collection of parcels with new data complementing historical information. Hydric potential, resistivity, vigor - the precision of all this information allowed the team to build customized blends, helping fully reveal the personality of each variety.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56.5%), Merlot (38%) and Cabernet Franc (5.5%), the Carruades de Lafite 2018 accurately expresses the DNA of the Pauillac terroir in a magnificent red wine with its own unique identity.

Exquisitely fine tannins to the currant, lead-pencil and chocolate character. The palate is full, yet very refined and linear with a long, lingering finish. Such polish and tension. The tannins are intense, yet so fine, giving almost a powdery texture. So Lafite-like. Best Carruades ever? 56% cabernet sauvignon and 38% merlot, the rest cabernet franc. Drink after 2026.
