The beauty of a great Saint-Estephe

A Cru Bourgeois located on the left bank of Bordeaux, in the Saint-Estphe appellation, Chateau Laffitte Carcasset has produced a great 2018 vintage.

A demanding vintage for sure, 2018 required the full attention and know-how of the estate’s technical teams in order to face the challenges posed by nature. The rainy and mild spring caused strong mildew pressure. The change in temperature in July and the bright sunshine that lasted until the date of the harvest helped produce a wonderfully solar vintage. The grape harvest began on September 17th and finished on October 10th, yielding grapes of exceptional quality, with a beautiful phenolic richness, beautiful aromas and gorgeously ripe skins.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (47%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), the Chateau Laffitte Carcasset 2018 offers the experience of a superb Saint-Estephe with beautiful fruit flavors.
