Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 16-

Not in the Farr tasting. Transparent garnet with a pale rim. Rather weedy and light on the nose. Acidity pretty prominent. This was made when anything with Lafite on the label was so sought after in China that there may not have been that much incentive to maximise quality. A bit pinched on the end. Scrawny finish but decent enough balance. Horribly expensive though. [03/03/2022]

Vinous – 88

The 2012 Carruades de Lafite is friendly, open and quite expressive. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, dried cherries and herbs open up in a mid-weight, fleshy red to drink over the next decade or so. The 2012 is soft, silky and easygoing. [Antonio Galloni, 01/01/2016]

Robert Parker – 89

A very good second wine from Lafite Rothschild, the 2012 Carruades de Lafite (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) shows dark ruby/plum/purple color, cedar wood, blackcurrants, medium-bodied, ripe tannin and a nice textured mouthfeel. It is very attractive, soft and ideal for drinking over the next 15 or more years. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 18/04/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030
