Chateau Laffitte Carcasset St. Estephe 2018
Founded in 1759 by Joseph Laffitte, an attorney of the King of France, this is one of the great Cru Bourgeois values from the gravel plateau of Saint Estèphe. The wine is beautifully balanced with fresh layers of blackberry, raspberry, and graphite. Focused mineral notes carry through to a long finish. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged 12 months in oak.
