James Suckling – 96/100
The purity of fruit is so enticing here with strawberries, flowers, lavender and currants. Black earth, too. Some stone and cement. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. It shows so much cabernet sauvignon character. It’s 68% cabernet sauvignon, 27% merlot and the rest cabernet franc.
Jeb Dunnuck – 96/100
The second wine of the estate, the 2019 Carruades De Lafite offers a beautiful, Lafite-like bouquet of crème de cassis, cedar pencil, tobacco, and new leather. Gorgeously complex, medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins, and a great finish, it’s a brilliant wine that would certainly do just fine in a blind lineup of Lafite. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 94/100 
The 2019 Carruades de Lafite is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, harvested from the 19th of September to the 7th of October. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, fresh notions of wild blueberries, ripe plums and redcurrant jelly plus hints of cinnamon stick, cumin seed, oolong tea and violets with a waft of black olives. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers loads of rich, ripe, spicy flavors with a soft texture of nicely rounded tannins and with the freshness in the background, finishing on a lingering allspice note. In a word: Yum!
Decanter – 93/100
As with the Duhart, this is very Pauillac, with pencil lead and cedar notes, and the highest amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in Carruades to date. Subdued on the nose, but it opens up with a lovely floral character. It starts off with frank, autumnal fruit on the attack, majoring on brambly plum, with tannins that build up through the palate and do their job of tugging things back, putting on the brakes. A little more straight laced than the 2018, but one that you would be more than happy to own and to share. Has the drinkability that Lafite prides itself on.

Limited & Exclusive

Because the demand for bottles from these exclusive wineries is so great, allocations are offered per country and importer in very limited quantities per reference / producer. Depending on the availability from Bordeaux, this means that some references may or may not be available, or only in very small volumes. This results in the sale of these wines often going very quickly.

Wine Wizz will be happy to keep you informed by email and text as soon as a wine becomes available. Simply register for our alerts via the relevant product page!

Buying En Primeurs

The Primeurs campaign in Bordeaux, also called En-Primeur, is a way to buy the most sought after wines and vintages while they are still in barrels. This gives customers the opportunity to invest in a certain exclusive wine before it is bottled and offered to the market. This allows customers to guarantee the purchase of a specific wine at a discount on the “future” price.

Payment (ex-VAT and delivery costs) and ordering takes place approximately 18 to 24 months before the wine is bottled and delivered.

All our En-Primeur wines are delivered ex-Chateau, guaranteed for authenticity!
