The second wine, the 2007 Carraudes de Lafite, is nearly equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A sleeper of the vintage, it offers sexy, ripe berry fruit intermixed with hints of cedarwood, forest floor, and underbrush. This plump, corpulent, fruity effort reveals a velvety texture as well as a lush finish. Enjoy it over the next 8-10 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2010



Balanced and very pretty, with refined tannins, medium body and delicious berry, chocolate and light spice. -James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2008

Carraudes de Lafite is the second wine of Château Lafite-Rothschild , one of the Pauillac first growths. Similar in style to the grand vin of Lafite, Carruades generally contains a higher proportion of Merlot, and much of the wine comes from specific vineyard plots throughout the Lafite vineyards. The name of the wine comes from the Carruades plateau – a group of vineyards just next to the château hilltop.
