This wine is from the Chateau Lafite Rothschild Winery in Pauillac, France of the world renowned Bordeaux region. It is a Bordeaux Red Blend. It has a dense and shiny color with an after taste that lingers and only gets better.
The Red Blend has a bitter chocolate taste with black, red currant and a damp earthiness. This is a medium to full body wine with a timeline of opening in the next 15 years. The tannins are firm.
Wine.com has called this wine “Smooth and Supple”. Carruades is a second label wine and distinguishes itself from the regular “Lafite” as the “Carruades de Lafite”. Aged in Oak barrels, the grapes are grown in gravel based soils, and tend to be more affordable and will mature sooner. A very fine Red Blend from France!
