2005 Carruades de Château Lafite, Pauillac

In this vintage Carruades comprises near equal proportions of Cabernet and Merlot, with around 10% of Cabernet Franc. The quality of the second wine of Lafite continues to impress: deep appearance in the glass, with a smooth flowing texture and ample dark mulberry and currant fruit. The 2005 seems more generous than previous Carruades with a pleasing weight and a peppery touch to the tannins. Fresh and pure, this is classic pauillac.
