Description · Château Lafite Rothschild

2004 Carruades de Lafite (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)

Carruades is the second label wine produced by Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. After fermentation and maceration, the wines are tasted, selected and put together according to their different qualities. This step is very important because this is where we make the difference between the great "Lafite" and the second wine "Carruades de Lafite". The wines are drained off into oak barrels. We use 100% new barrels for the ageing of Lafite. The year after, these same barrels will be used for the Carruades.

First of all, you'll perceive a raspberry flavour. Carruades de Lafite was ok, the kind of my taste.
I would recommend this and the other vintages of this 2016.
