Carruades de Lafite 2001
Tasting Notes Carruades de Lafite 2001
Slightly jammy on the nose with raspberry coulis, redcurrant and strawberry fruit. Lacks a little typicity. A sweet strawberry and cherry flavoured saturated palate that needs more acidity and definition. Just a little overdone. Tasted October 2007.
The second wine, the 2007 Carraudes de Lafite, is nearly equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A sleeper of the vintage, it offers sexy, ripe berry fruit intermixed with hints of cedarwood, forest floor, and underbrush. This plump, corpulent, fruity effort reveals a velvety texture as well as a lush finish. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years.
