Tasting Notes Carruades de Lafite 1997

87-89

The 2011 Carruades de Lafite is composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Soft berry fruit, underbrush, fresh herb and bay leaf characteristics as well as soft tannins, a velvety texture, and a medium-bodied, slightly superficial, but satisfying style suggest this 2011 should be consumed over the next 10-15 years.

This is showing very well on the nose with good precision and a fine sense of mineralite with notes of blackberry, raspberry leaf and a touch of black olives. The palate has a supple entry, slight astringency in the middle, black olives once again with a touch of black cherry and soy, but very lithe and silky on the pointed finish. This has softened since its austere youth. Drink now-2011. Tasted September 2008.
