Average rating 92.92

An enticing mix of dark red cherry, plum, violet, lavender and graphite notes emerge from the 2014 Carruades de Lafite, a wine of notable depth and purity, especially at this level. There is a definition and inner sweetness to the fruit that is impossible to miss. All the Lafite signatures are present, specifically the intensely perfumed, sweet fruit that is often found in this sector in Pauillac. The Carruades is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot. Carruades de Lafite represents 25% of the chateau's production.
Lots of blackberries, dried mushrooms and minerals. Blackcurrants too with some tar. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with an intensity and liveliness on the finish. Salty and minerally. Give it until 2021 to try. Feb 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
Very backward, with loads of cedar, espresso and juniper out front, while the core of currant and blackberry fruit stays in reserve. Shows ample grip on the finish, but this is fine-grained and exhibits superb cut. Tasted non-blind.J.M.
No tasting note given.

This is relatively dark. This stains the glass and there is a hint of pencil-box on the nose. A touch of cassis in the mouth and there is a definite Lafite character to this. The cassis carries through to the end. The best Carruades in years. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
