Tasting Notes Carruades de Lafite 1998

90

Another brilliant second wine, the 2010 Carruades de Lafite (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot) is elegant and amazing for a second wine from Lafite. 'Carruades de Lafite' is now engraved in the bottle to prevent unscrupulous sommeliers and merchants from trying to pass it off as Lafite Rothschild. The wine displays much of the same lead pencil, charcoal and black currant notes of its bigger sister, although it is forward, precocious and far less structured than the grand vin. Nevertheless, this wine, which can be drunk now, will cellar beautifully for at least 20-25 more years.

Ruby core. Pink rim. Nose is dominated by New Oak. Some raspberry notes. Palate is a little astringent with light acidity. Supple red fruits. Classy Second wine but not in the same league as Les Forts de Latour of Clos du Maquis. Tasted February 2000.
