The Carruades de Lafite has only had this name since the 1980s. Its name was Moulin des Carruades before this period.
He benefits from the same production methods as his older brother, the famous Château Lafite. One of the points that differentiates them is the origin of the grapes used in its composition (younger vines located in other parcels).
The other difference is of course the blending, which is much more based on Merlot (30 to 50%) and much less on Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Carruades de Lafite 2005 is dark garnet in colour with intense reflections.
On the nose, it offers a bouquet of ripe black fruits dominated by plum and an interesting touch of moka. Still a little bit on the reserve, its nose will become even more complex in the years to come.
On the palate, it offers an aromatic palette in accordance with its nose, black fruits are very present, supported by woody notes and fine tannins, perfectly balanced. After a short aeration, Carruades de Lafite becomes more complex, revealing elegant notes of blond tobacco and a spicy touch of pepper.
The elegance of its mouth and the length of its finish suggest that the Carruades de Lafite 2005 has a huge potential that a few years in the cellar will undoubtedly reveal!
