Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

The Rothschilds are making enormous investments in this estate, so I'm expecting a breakthrough effort to emerge (maybe the 2003 qualifies). The deep ruby-colored 2001 exhibits a moderately intense, noble bouquet of graphite, plums, and currants. Elegant (much in the style of Lafite) with medium body, sweet tannin, and a lively finish, it will be at its finest between 2007-2017.

Good core of fruit, with silky tannins and a medium to long finish of licorice, smoke and berry. Very good red.

($25-$33) Dark red. Currant, tobacco leaf and tarry oak on the nose. Pliant and open, with fat, sweet currant and tobacco flavors. Shows more volume than the Carruades de Lafite I tasted alongside it, but less clarity and thrust.

We all loved this wine. Medium to full bodied, very silky, the graphite/lead pencil shaving aromas were in the fore-front, along with dark fruits. Very nice, rich mid-palate and a long finish.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
