Carruades de Lafite--Vintage 2000 Pauillac The second wine of Château Lafite-Rothschild Tasting Note: A brilliant second wine, the 2000 Carruades de Lafite (51.4 Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.3 Merlot, 4.9 Cabernet Franc, and 1.4 Petit Verdot), aged in 10-15 new French oak, shows wonderfully sweet lead pencil shavings intermixed with an elegant black cherry and cassis nose. A wine of tremendous purity, medium body, and the tell-tale Lafite elegance, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 12-15 years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate 146, April 2003. 12 bottles per lot
