Reviews for 2000 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Carruades de Lafite

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2003
Wonderfully ripe and decadent with tobacco meat and ripe berry aromas with hints of currants. Full-bodied and very velvety with unctuous fruit flavors. Long and exotic aftertaste. Terrific wine. Second wine of Lafite... Wonderfully ripe and decadent with tobacco meat and ripe berry aromas with hints of currants. Full-bodied and very velvety with unctuous fruit flavors.

A brilliant second wine the 2000 Carruades de Lafite (51.4% Cabernet Sauvignon 42.3% Merlot 4.9% Cabernet Franc and 1.4% Petit Verdot) aged in 10-15% new French oak shows wonderfully sweet lead pencil shavings intermixed... A brilliant second wine the 2000 Carruades de Lafite (51.4% Cabernet Sauvignon 42.3% Merlot 4.9% Cabernet Franc and 1.4% Petit Verdot) aged in 10-15% new French 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 gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.
