Tasting Notes Carruades de Lafite 2016

94-95

The most tannic and textured Carruades ever. Full-bodied, big and powerful. Very, very long. New style?

There's a putty note on the nose. Neat, restrained, rather tight nose and a tad mean on the end. Just as there's a big gap between Petit Mouton and the grand vin, so there seems to be between Carruades and Lafite. Drying tannins on the end. Seems to be a lack of phenolic ripeness towards the end of the palate experience even though it starts out pretty ripe and round.
