Carruades de Lafite Pauillac 2011

Carruades de Lafite Pauillac 750ml 2011         
Sku: 1894208

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Given the refined selection of fine wines after two decades, the Carruades feature characteristics similar to those of the fine wine, but with their own personality linked to a higher percentage of Merlot in its composition, and plots of land that are clearly identified as producing Carruades.
The origin of the name comes from the Carruades plateau, the name of a group of plots adjacent to the chateau’s best vineyards, purchased in 1845 by Château Lafite. In the 20th century, the Carruades were marketed separately from Château Lafite before being integrated. The name Carruades adopted as the name of Château Lafite Rothschild’s second wine, which was initially called "Moulin des Carruades” before 1980’s.

This has a slightly grainy feel, with cedar and ground vanilla bean notes leading to layers of plum, cherry compote and lightly mulled currant fruit. A strong tobacco accent fills in on the finish, revealing a cedary echo at the very end. Best from 2016 through 2026. -JM

Medium ruby. Straightforward aromas of redcurrant, mint and cedar, plus a suggestion of coffee. Light and fresh on the palate, showing moderate depth to its red fruit and cedar flavors. With modest concentration and sweetness, the tannins make their presence felt a bit early. A very light Carruades.
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Apr 2012)
The 2011 Carruades de Lafite is composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Soft berry fruit, underbrush, fresh herb and bay leaf characteristics as well as soft tannins, a velvety texture, and a medium-bodied, slightly superficial, but satisfying style suggest this 2011 should be consumed over the next 10-15 years.
