Description

A fresh and balanced red wine from Saint-Estèphe

The estate

The origins of Château Laffitte Carcasset date back to the beginning of the 18th century. Located in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Laffitte Carcasset is surrounded by some of the finest estates of Bordeaux. Purchased by the Rousseau family in 2016, the property classified Cru Bourgeois Supérieur is an important reference in the appellation.

The vineyard

The Château Laffitte-Carcasset vineyard covers 35 hectares. Located on the Saint-Estèphe plateau, the vines, 30 years old on average, are planted on soils of Garonne gravel and clay-limestone subsoils.

The vintage

2020 was among the 5 earliest vintages in the last 20 years. The warm winter favoured an early beginning to the vegetative cycle, followed by a sunny and rainy spring, which favouring even flowering. The particularly hot summer was marked by periods of scorching temperatures which, thanks to the soil's ability to preserve its water reserves, did not impact the vineyard. The rainy episode before August 15 was beneficial for the development of the vines and for perfecting the ripening process. The harvest began two weeks ahead of schedule, on average. The sanitary conditions were perfect and the grapes showed very ripe aromatic expressions.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes were selected on an intra-plot basis. Fermentation was carried out in the new gravity-fed vat (stainless steel and concrete) in order to favour slow and gentle extractions. Ageing lasted 12 months in oak barrels (40% of which were new oak barrels).

The blend

The Château Laffitte Carcasset 2020 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (44%) and Cabernet Franc (3%).

The tasting

Displaying a beautifully intense colour, the Château Laffitte Carcasset 2020 seduces with its fruity aromas, its balance, its smooth texture and beautifully saline aromas. This sunny vintage reveals great freshness, tension and ageing potential.
