88-90pts Neal Martin“The Carruades de Lafite is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It has quite a floral bouquet with touches of dried violet petals infusing the crisp blackberry fruit, laced with cedar and a touch of smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple entry, starting with black fruit but gently moving to more red fruit towards the finish. There is not the usual persistency, but it has pleasing purity and approachability.

88-91pts James Molesworth, Wine Spectator“Perfumy, with black tea notes out front, followed by racy, tightly focused red currant and black cherry fruit. The sleek, tobacco-fueled finish has a pleasant racy edge. Not dense, but balanced and defined. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
