Carruades De Lafite 1952 Pauillac 12 x 75cl
This lot contains a case of 12 bottles of 1952 Carruades de Lafite Rothschild, the second wine of Château Lafite Rothschild from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation, shipped by Barton & Guestier negociants.
Carruades de Lafite is similar in style to the wine of the First Growth Château itself, but with a higher proportion of Merlot in the blend and the inclusion of specific plots that are earmarked to produce Carruades. The name comes from the Carruades plateau, a group of plots acquired in 1845 just next to the vines on the Château hilltop.
Please note, the original wooden case is available for customers wishing to arrange collection, or can be included with the lot for an additional charge equivalent to a further twelve bottles.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note minor damage to the labels.
