The 2nd wine of Chateau Lafite--made from the young vines at the estate. This is an affordable way to experience the unique elegance, beauty and finesse of the world's most famous red wine.

Moderately dense in color, the wine displays enticing, multidimensional fruit aromas. The palate has charm and grace along with impeccable equilibrium, and the finish is relatively expressive at this early stage and is very attractive. A lovely, sensual Chevalier of a very high caliber. Tasted from barrel April '07. By early '09, Domaine de Chavlier offers a lovely, pure and very expressive aroma of red fruits and carefully judged, well-integrated oak. The palate is pure and subtle- and already very long. Chevalier '06 is so very fine and elegant and shows beautifully now, as it did from barrel two years earlier. Robert Parker 92.


Winemaker's Notes:

In the talented hands of the charismatic Charles Chevalier this is another very<br/>fine Carruades. Polished and attractive, this very grand Second wine of Lafite<br/>has lovely creamy blackcurrant and strawberry fruit, with a persistence rarely<br/>seen in 2006. A delicate, harmonious red fruit nose, leads onto a silky,<br/>feminine palate and a beautifully balanced finish. This is an excellent, and<br/>very good value, glimpse at the wonders of Ch. Lafite but is also a very good<br/>wine in its own right.
