Carruades de Lafite has a floral bouquet. Notes of ripe fruit, blackcurrants, cedar, and spices. A dense, rich wine with very refined, well-integrated tannins. Excellent length; overall, an elegant, balanced wine.
"Though this is the second wine for Lafite-Rothschild, it is a major wine in its own right, with its dense, powered fruit and a structure obviously built to last. There is sweet, rich fruit and lively vibrant acidity. "
"Good deep red. Pungent aromas of currant, cherry skin, leather, graphite, olive and flowers. Suave, minerally and penetrating, with lovely energy and floral lift. Not at all a fleshy style but classic, vibrant and firmly built, finishing with excellent lift."
