Carruades de Lafite Pauillac 2008

SKU 42794


Wonderful dense, shiny colour. Expressive nose of red fruit with pleasant smoky notes. On the palate, a clean, precise attack; the wine then becomes denser and lengthens in the mid palate. Very well-balanced and somewhat lively, with a silky finish.

Wine EnthusiastFirm tannins and great freshness, with a touch of bitter chocolate as well as spice and tight tannins. This second wine of Lafite is attractively fruity, easily lifting the weight of tannins.

Wine SpectatorStill quite tight, with taut cedar, tangy damson plum and cherry pit notes around the edges, while the core of red cherry and fig has yet to fill in fully. There's a lean-edged finish as well. Might fill in a touch with cellaring, but a gamble. Drink now through 2014.
