Carruades de Lafite 2020 (6x75cl)

Carruades de Lafite 2020 (6x75cl)

Only available VAT & Duty Paid
Carruades de Lafite is hugely popular because it is made from the same terroir, using the same wine-making team, as the Lafite Rothschild Grand Vin (first wine). The only difference is that the plots generally used for Carruades contain more Merlot vines. There is generally more Merlot in Carruades (42% in 2020) and obviously in a ‘Merlot vintage’ like 2020 that is a very good thing!

Carruades de Lafite 2020 displays the balance and elegance consistently delivered by Château Lafite Rothschild. The 2020 is “one of the finest second wines out there” according to Jeb Dunnuck (92-94 points). Carrying “plenty of Pauillac signature” (Jane Anson), the 2020 vintage offers notes of “Morello cherries, raspberry leaves, baked blackberries and spice box, plus suggestions of pencil lead, lavender and Provence herbs”, concluding with a “long and lifted” finish (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 91-93 points). Drinking well out to 2042
