This is an extremely Grand Vin for a second wine. A beguiling perfumed nose seems to offer almost tropical hints to the main fruity, floral and cedar aromas. Carruades is normally a bit harder to get into but when you taste it you feel you want to take this home and drink it straightaway; on your own. There is concentrated red fruit on the palate, that is silky, elegant and complex, all buttressed very nicely by a slab of fresh acidity and very fine tannins. Tasted blind you would easily take this for a 2nd or 3rd growth.
