    The precision of a red grand vin from Pauillac

    The Second Wine of the prestigious Premier Grand Cru ClasseChateau 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.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Carruades de Lafite is composed of 56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 5.5% Cabernet Franc. The Merlot was harvested September 17-24, the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested September 25 to October 5, and the Cabernet Franc was harvested September 24. Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals a very serious nose of pencil shavings, black tea, violets and dark chocolate with earthy wafts of underbrush and mossy bark over a core of warm cassis, blackberry preserves and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, the densely packed, black-fruited palate is laced with loads of compelling mineral sparks with a firm, grainy frame and beautiful freshness to lift the long, earthy finish.
