Robert Parker:
This has become one of the finest second wines produced. The 1998 (a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is an outstanding effort. While very Lafite-like (although more supple and forward), it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to an excellent bouquet of black fruits, smoke, earth, and minerals, supple tannin, an excellent texture, and a long, fine finish. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.90 points Drink 2001-2015

Andrew Jefford:
My pick of the second wines this year, Carruades is remarkably deep in colour, with roast blackcurrant scents and more intense ripe, pure, long-flavoured blackcurrants in the mouth.
