Chateau Laffitte Carcasset constructs their Grand Vin from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot; muscular, full, tannic and delightfully intense. Rich red meat dishes are perfect for this wine to be served alongside!
Chartreuse of the 18th century, and surrounded by the central vineyards of the gravel plateau of Saint-Estephe, Chateau Laffittee Carcasset has been producing wine since 1790. Chevalier Joseph Laffitte, attorney to the King of France, bought the domaine and grew the first vineyards. Later in 1955, Viscount Pierre de Padirac purchased the property and his descendants have since made several expansions and technical improvements to serve the continued quality of the estate’s wine.
The 2016 Chateau Laffitte Carcasset offers attractive cedar infused black fruit on the nose, hints of red plum following just behind, quite detailed with abundant fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin that exert a gentle grip, a masculine Saint Estephe that is harmonious and focused, the finish testifying that just the right amount of oak was employed. Great job here!
