Carruades de Lafite Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

From a legendary vintage for Château Lafite, this is probably the finest 2nd wine of all. With only 38% of the 1996 crop at Lafite going into the Grand Vin, this Carruades is a truly exceptional wine with many of the qualities of its elder sibling, and equivalent in quality to a 2nd or 3rd growth. Fantastic value. Drink 2004-2020.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

An aromatic yet compact wine dark and rich with floral berry and mineral aromas. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a silky-textured finish. Best after 2000. (JS) Wine Spectator.
