Carruades De Lafite (6 / Case) Pauillac

$1,071.98 / case(6)



2012 was characterized by difficult weather conditions in the bordeaux region. After a relatively mild winter the spring was mostly wet and rainy especially april with a hail storm on the 24th. Such conditions hampered fertilization leading to fears of reduced yields. Work in the vineyard was as vital as ever. June and july alternated heat and humidity. The weather became more stable from the beginning of august enabling the healthy grapes to finish ripening in good conditions. Nevertheless there was considerable variation in their degrees of ripeness and a great deal of sorting work was carried out by our teams from the end september. Tasting notes (at bottling): heady very floral nose with exceptional complexity. On the palate fine balance on the attack continues with good flavour expression before a fairly long finish with lovely structure still lively and with a hint of woodiness. – carruades de lafite *91-94/100 wine spectator
