IMPERIALES OF CARRUADES DE LAFITE Lying in Weybridge, Surrey (EHD) Offered duty-paid, but available in bond Carruades de Lafite--Vintage 2004 Pauillac. The second wine of Château Lafite-Rothschild In original wooden cases Tasting note: Lafite's second wine has become stronger over recent vintages as the selection for the grand vin has become Draconian under administrator Charles Chevalier. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Carruades de Lafite (48 Cabernet Sauvignon, 47 Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) exhibits sweet, crunchy, savory, black cherry, and raspberry fruit along with hints of road tar, spring flowers, and a touch of minerality. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 12-13. Robert Parker Wine Advocate # 165 Jun 2006 1 impériale per lot
