Chateau Carruades De Lafite 2004

PLEASE CHECK STOCK AVAILABILITY AND PRICING
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.

48% Cabernet Sauvignon , 47% Merlot , 4% Cabernet Franc , 1% Petit Verdot
After a rainy winter and a cold spring, June and July were dry and warm. August was mild and in September the weather was good without being very warm, which led to slow ripening and the harvest dates being pushed back to the end of September. Patience was needed to wait for the grapes to become perfectly ripe.
Very Pauillac, scent of rosewood, red fruit, lots of power.
