Winemaker Notes

The 1988 harvest produced Cabernets and Merlots that came out to be very colorful, and structured. This wine was then aged in one-year-old used Chateau Lafite Rothschild barrels before bottling.

Wine Spectator
Beautiful nose of currant and dark chocolate follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. I love the texture to this wine. Lots in reserve for aging. Excellent for a second wine.

Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Carruades is the second label wine produced by Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. After fermentation and maceration, the wines are tasted, selected and put together according to their different qualities. This step is very important because this is where we make the difference between the great "Lafite" and the second wine "Carruades de Lafite". The wines are drained off into oak barrels. We use 100% new barrels for the ageing of Lafite. The year after, these same barrels will be used for the Carruades.
