Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac
Arrow

Description

Bought whilst working in France, the wine has been stored since purchase in ideal conditions in a private underground wine cellar in the UK. It was removed from that cellar solely because the property was sold and is now stored in a Caple wine storage unit whist awaiting sale. Bottles and labels are both in excellent condition.

Robert Parker in 1998 scored the wine 86-88 and said "I have noticed in my tastings that the second wine of Lafite-Rothschild, Carruades de Lafite, has improved over recent years. The 1996, a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, may turn out to be the finest Carruades I have ever tasted. It possesses as much power, ripeness, and fleshy fruit (because of the high percentage of Merlot) as I have ever detected in this offering"

The wine is drinking well now, but will also keep longer in good conditions.
