Abundant notes of sandy, loamy soil, forest floor, black currants, cherries, and unsmoked high-class cigar tobacco jump from the glass of this complex, perfumed Pessac-Leognan. Medium-bodied and lighter than many 2000s, it has resolved all of its tannin, and appears to have reached full maturity. This wine has such superb balance that I suspect it will last another 8-10 years.


Winemaker's Notes:

"A brilliant second wine, the 2000 Caruuades de Lafite (51.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.3% Merlot, 4.9% Cabernet Franc and 1.4% Petit Verdot) aged in 10-15% new oak, shows wonderfully sweet lead pencil shavings intermixed with an elegant black cherry and cassis nose. A wine of tremendous purity, medium body and the tell-tale Lafite elegance, this is a gorgoeus wine to drink now and over the next 12-15 years." 90/100 pts (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr-2003)
