ESTATE HISTORY

Château Lafite Rothschild’s second wine, Carruades de Lafite presents similar characteristics to the Grand Vin, but with its own personality linked to a higher proportion of Merlot and to specific plots that are used to produce Carruades. The name comes from the Carruades plateau, a group of plots acquired in 1845 just next to the vines on the Château hilltop.

WINEMAKING

Ageing in oak barrels 16 to 20 months, 80% in oak barrels (10% new).

TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS

Robert Parker: Second wine of Lafite-Rothschild, Carruades de Lafite, has improved over recent years. The 1995 is a 40% Merlot/60% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. It exhibits more of the trademark characteristics of its bigger sibling. Elegant, with spicy new oak, lead pencil, and creamy black currant fruit, this is a medium-bodied, finesse-styled wine with excellent purity and overall equilibrium. 

Carruades de Lafite Rothschild is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game and roasted chicken.
