Carruades de Lafite 2023, 1.5L

Region: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot
Classification:
Importer: Place de Bordeaux
Score: 95-96 JS
Review: "A savory and juicy Carruades with softness and notes of ripe berry, cedar and dried tobacco. Like Lafite from the 1980s but more precise. Round and pretty. It really grows on the finish with such sweetness of fruit and length. Pointed, fine tannins at the end. Very long. A blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot."

"Medium intensity ruby, fairly austere right now, structured, with the same mint leaf and ink quality as Lafite. The sweet brambled black fruits only come in through the mid palate, this is well paced, unrolls slowly, a serious and concentrated Carruades that has its eye on the future." 94 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
