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. WA 90

Tasting note


The 2007 Chateau Lafite Rothschild 'Carruades de Lafite' is a testament to the storied terroir of Pauillac. This wine, with its savory and classic profile, offers a fresh and juicy palate with bright acidity and solid tannins. The bouquet is graced with notes of spice and a hint of green fruit, leading to a finish that is marked by tannins and wood. Crafted with a higher proportion of Merlot, this second wine of Château Lafite Rothschild is aged in French oak barrels, revealing a personality distinct from the Grand Vin yet sharing its lineage. Decant for an hour to unveil its full expression and enjoy with hearty dishes like roast lamb or beef bourguignon.
