The best Carruades de Lafite I have ever tasted is the 2009. Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, 55% of the crop was included in this second wine. It is an atypically powerful Carruades with s...

The finest wine I have tasted from this estate in my 30+ - year career, the 2009 (64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot) from this hallowed vineyard in Leognan was cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare and came in at 13% alcohol. It reveals an extraordinary, intense, pure, quintessential Domaine de Chevalier style, including silky tannin, dense plum, black currant, black cherry, floral, and graphite notes, terrific acidity, sweet tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel with no weight, but admirable precision and freshness. Consultant Stephane Derenoncourt has coaxed out all the elegance and complexity at this great site. A future legend in the making, this could be the best Domaine de Chevalier produced over the last half century. It should drink well for 35-40 years. (Tasted four times.)

51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Very deep ruby at the core, the color pushes all the way to the edge of the wines rim. This wine is already rather approachable at this point in its life, soft powdery tannins a... John Sweeney.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: A violet perfume drifts from the 2009 Carruades de Lafite, immediately<br/>suggesting its elegance. This has great depth and layer upon layer of<br/>concentrated fruit, beautifully balanced by ultra ripe, almost powdery tannins.<br/>A wonderful freshness defines the wine whilst the concentrated dark fruit<br/>merges seamlessly into a long, black cherry finish. Put simply, this is the<br/>best Carruades we've ever tasted.
