Description

A smooth and delicate Saint-Estèphe wine

The estate

The origins of Château Laffitte Carcasset date back to the beginning of the 18th century. Located in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Laffitte Carcasset is surrounded by some of the greatest Bordeaux vineyards. The property, which has been in the hands of the Rousseau family since 2016, is classified as a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur and is a reference in the appellation.

The vineyard

Château Laffitte-Carcasset 2022 is a Saint-Estèphe wine from a 35-hectare vineyard, certified HVE 3. Located on the plateau of the appellation, the vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on Garonne gravel soils and clay-limestone subsoils.

The vintage

A mild, dry winter preceded a month of April marked by frost. The hot weather in April was followed by a severe summer drought. The vines resisted these extreme conditions, thanks to sufficient water reserves and the hard work of the teams in managing the vineyard. The health of the vines was perfect and the flowering was uniform. The low rainfall in August was beneficial.

Winemaking and ageing

Intra-cellular selection and harvesting of each terroir at optimum ripeness. Fermentation was carried out in the new gravity-fed vat room (stainless steel and concrete vats). Slow and gentle extractions. The wine was aged for 12 months in oak barrels (40% of which were new).

Blend

Merlot (50%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (45%)
Cabernet Franc (5%).
