CARRUADES DE LAFITE, 2007

PAUILLAC

“In 2007, a strict selection led Lafite to remove 17% of its production! Which obviously made the second wine better. The nearly 45% of merlot comes out on the nose with black fruits and leather notes enhanced by a spice taste and fine woody notes. Quite dense on the attack, the palate develops a noble fruit and a supple flesh supported by racy tannins. A gorgeous Pauillac.” - Le Guide Hachette des Vins 2011

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.
