Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 16

Tasted blind. Light and a bit muddy. Lacking real concentration. A bit sweet and sour. Then drying tannins on the end. [20/01/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2028-2040

Vinous – 93

The 2018 Carruades de Lafite is delicate, sensual and elegant, with a striking interplay of finesse and power. A wine of total allure and translucence, the 2018 Carruades is so silky, so finessed, so classy. Sweet red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal and spice are all finely knit in a Pauillac of tremendous class. Harvest started on September 17 and wrapped up on October 5 for the Cabernets. [Antonio Galloni, 29/03/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2038

Robert Parker – 94

The 2018 Carruades de Lafite is a blend of 56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 5.5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery scents of redcurrant jelly, blackcurrant pastilles and Morello cherries with hints of candied violets, pencil shavings, menthol and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled, with layers of crunchy red and black fruits, it has a beautifully ripe, fine-grained texture and loads of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2039
