2002 Carruades de Château Lafite, Pauillac
Deep and intense in hue with a bright purple rim, the nose is open and expressive with aromas of sweet berry and cassis fruit. There is a light perfumed note here with scents of violets and cherry blossom. The palate offers cassis, plum and damson notes that are balanced by soft integrated tannins and fresh acidity. There is a wonderful texture to the fruit and the finish has focus and mineral poise. This is a charming wine that should prove to be a delight for mid-term drinking.
