CRITIC REVIEWS

Richard Hemming MW

64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. Impressive, wonderfully toned cassis and cedar. Softest tannins, and very light body. I expect it will develop quite nicely in the short to medium term, but it doesn’t have the strength to last into old age. (RH)

77-79
Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2013 Carruades de Lafite includes about 50% of the crop. As at many properties in 2013, yields were very small (30 hectoliters per hectare), but that has not resulted in much character or concentration in the wine. It is light to medium ruby-hued with dusty, loamy soil notes, modest, superficial fruit, and a fading, angular finish. Drink it up.
