50.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 1.5% Petit Verdot
Château Lafite Rothschild’s second wine, Carruades de Lafite presents similar characteristics to the Grand Vin, but with its own personality linked to a higher proportion of Merlot and to specific plots that are used to produce Carruades. The name comes from the Carruades plateau, a group of plots acquired in 1845 just next to the vines on the Château hilltop.
2001 had a longer than usual growing season, with flowering taking place during the normal period, but with late, uneven ripening. Great patience was required during the harvests! The first Merlot was harvested on 28 September, and then after a short pause, the harvests continued on 1 October and finished on the 11th.
This medium bodied wine is drinking well now but should still have many more years in it.
