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.

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.
