Winemaker Notes

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 the difference is made between the great "Lafite" and the second wine "Carruades de Lafite". The wines are drained off into oak barrels. 100% new barrels are used for the ageing of Lafite. The year after, these same barrels will be used for the Carruades.

Dark color, expressive, woody bouquet. The attack is powerful, the palate is then fruity and well-balanced, with a good long finish.

Blend: 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, 1.5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This has become one of the finest second wines produced. The 1998 (a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is an outstanding effort. While very Lafite-like (although more supple and forward), it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to an excellent bouquet of black fruits, smoke, earth, and minerals, supple tannin, an excellent texture, and a long, fine finish.
