The Second Wine of the prestigious Premier Grand Cru Classé – Château Lafite-Rothschild – the Carruades de Lafite 2019 reflects the identity of the great terroirs of Pauillac.
The 2019 Carruades de Lafite wine is a beautiful with currant, sweet-tobacco and wet-earth aromas and flavors. This Carruades de Lafite is a medium-bodied with a dense center-palate and tight, polished tannins. Fresh, with tension. This is a powerhouse wine that shows little of the radiance.
This 2019 Carruades De Lafite has a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc.
