Carruades de Lafite Pauillac 2008
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Carruades de Lafite|
Firm 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.
Still 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.
