Carruades De Lafite Rothschild 2000 Pauillac - Large Format 2 x 150cl / 12.5%
This lot contains two magnums of 2000 Carruades de Lafite Rothschild, the second wine of Château Lafite Rothschild from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation. This is a blend of 51.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.3% Merlot, 4.9% Cabernet Franc, and 1.4% Petit Verdot, which was aged in 10-15% new French oak.
'Wonderfully ripe and decadent, with tobacco, meat and ripe berry aromas, with hints of currants. Full-bodied, and very velvety, with unctuous fruit flavors. Long and exotic aftertaste. Terrific wine. Second wine of Lafite Rothschild. Best after 2010. 2,375 cases made. 93/100' James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2003
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
