This wine doesn't need company, it's great solo. For elegant occasions.
Lovely Bordeaux red colour. Château Lafite Rothschild Carruades de Lafite Pauillac revealed juicy red fruit in the nose. Flavours of chocolate and toffee.

I bought the Château Lafite Rothschild wine online.
A beautiful colour. Delicious aromas of licorice and mint. A very light taste.

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.
