Carruades de Lafite 2010

75cl / 13.5%

“This smells like a bouquet of flowers with blueberries and currants and spices.

Full body, yet agile and refined. So fine and pretty. It’s balanced and in harmony. Savory. A smoky, decadent and meat undertone.”

~ James Suckling

About the Carruades de Lafite 2010

“Solid, with bright cassis, fig and blackberry fruit studded with tobacco leaf, anise and violet. The long finish has a tarry thread, but stays polished and refined overall, with a whiff of sandalwood lingering gently. Best from 2014 through 2028.”

~ Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes

Colour: Youthful, very deep ruby colour with a vivid purple rim.
Nose: Composed notes of black-berries, cherries, plums, primary, elegant, prune, cassis and cedar are very restrained.
Palate: The palate is structured with very fine, ripe, cedary tannis. The damson & cassis fruit is restrained but balances the wine’s structure well. Fresh acidity helps makes the finish long & elegant.

Awards: 95pts James Suckling, 93pts Wine Spectator, 92pts Wine Advocate-Parker, 92pts Wine Enthusiast

Second label of Chateau Lafite Rothschild. Initially called Moulin des Carruades, Carruades de Lafite presents similar characteristics to the Grand Vin, but with its own personality linked to a higher proportion of Merlot and to specific plots that are used to produce Carruades. This aged vintage does not require long decanting, and you can open the bottle between 1 and 2 hours before tasting.

History of Château Lafite

The most prestigious among the First Classified Growths of 1855, Château Lafite Rothschild is the lord over his lands of gravel. Because great wines are born only in the great terroirs, Château Lafite Rothschild enjoys an exceptional location with a vineyard divided into three large areas, the hillsides surrounding the Château, the Carruades plateau in the west and a parcel in the neighbouring town of Saint-Estèphe. Château Lafite Rothschild has a total of 112 hectares of vines planted in a topsoil of sand with fine, deep gravel soils that rests on a limestone bedrock, which provides excellent drainage.

From Cardinal Richelieu to the American President Thomas Jefferson at the time, the great global personalities fell under the spell of this impressive wine with a unique soul and unparalleled refinement. With elegant tannins and a silky, velvety structure, there has been no equal over the decades to the wines of Château Lafite Rothschild!
