CARRUADES DE LAFITE, 2014

PAUILLAC

“The 2014 Carruades de Lafite has a crisp, tightly wound, blackberry scented bouquet that continues to demonstrate that attractive tarry tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple opening, notes of blackberry and mulberry fruit, a dash of white pepper, though it just feels a little blocky on the finish at the moment” - Robert Parker 88/100

Histoire et anecdotes

Carruades de Lafite is Château Lafite Rothschild’s second wine. The château located in Médoc, was classified as Premier Cru in the 1855 classification, in Pauillac appellation. The Château Lafite Rothschild history started in the 13th century. Until the 17th century, the estate was a co-lordship whose co-owners received the rents from farmers who were cultivating the lands, some of which were already dedicated to the culture of vine. Between 1670 and 1680, Jacques de Ségure structured the vineyard. In 1868, Baron James de Rothschild acquired Château Lafite.
