Tasting Note:

Carruades contains the broadest and most balanced blend of grape varieties of any of the wines of Domaines Barons de Rothschild, being 46% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The 2005 is an absolutely beautiful, focused wine, with pure red and black berries and plum on the nose, over delicate floral notes beyond; silky tannins on the palate lead to harmonious layers of rich cassis fruit, toast and grilled meat, and after some time, to a long and elegant finish carried on very fine tannins.
