Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 78

A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2013 Carruades de Lafite includes about 50% of the crop. As at many properties in 2013, yields were very small (30 hectoliters per hectare), but that has not resulted in much character or concentration in the wine. It is light to medium ruby-hued with dusty, loamy soil notes, modest, superficial fruit, and a fading, angular finish. Drink it up. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 28/08/2014]

Vinous – 87-89

The 2013 Carruades de Lafite graces the palate with dark red cherry, plum, spice and tobacco notes. A supple, accessible Pauillac, the 2013 is best enjoyed in its youth, before the fruit begins to fade. The Carruades is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Tasted twice. [Antonio Galloni, 04/01/2014]
