It maridará well with vegetables, and hair feathered game, stews and roasts. The optimal consumption will be from now until 2031. It should settle. It should be served at a temperature of between 12ºC and 16ºC preferably in a glass of Bordeaux type.

It had a very shutdown colour. Its aromas reminded me of yeast. I liked its acidity.
Is to be drunk with food.
A red which I enjoyed with my friends.
Acquired directly at the vineyard.
This red is worth .

Les Carruades de Lafite Rouge 2006

Les Carruades de Lafite 2006 has a very shutdown color. This wine has aromas of violets. I drunk a little and a few days later it was vinegary.
I drank before eating, with starters and snacks.

I celebrated a special occasion with Les Carruades de Lafite Rouge and my couple. I bought the Les Carruades de Lafite Rouge in the wine cellar.

We bought the bottle in the wine shop close to home.
I was impressed by its colour. Sweet caramell flavour.. On the palate was quite thick.
