Winemaker Notes

After a cold wet winter came a fine spring and nice summer that led to early veraison and good ripening. However, the rain in mid-September disturbed the harvests.

Beautiful deep colored hue. Nice fruity nose. Powerful on the palate, round and a very good tannic finish (before fining), well balanced with woody notes.

"The second wine, which has soared in quality over the last decade, is an outstanding effort displaying a character similar to that of Lafite, without the size, depth, and aging potential of that wine. The 2006 Carruades de Lafite offers up aromas of graphite, cedar, black currants, sweet cherries, and smoky herbs. This complex, more evolved, medium-bodied, silky-textured, sexy offering will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 15+ years." 90 Points

"Raspberry and black licorice on the nose, with a hint of tar. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. A little tight and one-dimensional now, but very good. The second wine of Lafite. Best after 2012." 89 Points

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.
