Once called “The King’s Wine”, thanks to influential support from the Maréchal de Richelieu. The vineyard is one of Médoc’s largest at around 1 km2. Around a third of the wine is released as a second wine under the label Carruades de Lafite. The final wine is composed of between 80-95 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 5-20 per cent Merlot. The wine has a particular softness imparted by the Merlot, creating finesse and elegance with age.
