Tasting Note:

We are huge admirers of Lafite and Duhart Milon. This is always one of the highlights of our primeur tastings, so we were slightly puzzled by the 2015s; Charles Chevalier's last vintage as technical director. Normally the wines have a gravitas, athleticism and muscularity, but these wines seem relatively delicate and floral with none of that brooding power. Carruades, produced from 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc is a good honest example with bitter sweet berry fruit and a velvety, plummy, Merlot character. It is simple, yet there is some fruit intensity and a good mouth-watering finish.
