The 2016 Chateau Laffitte Carcasset offers attractive cedar infused black fruit on the nose, hints of red plum following just behind, quite detailed with abundant fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin that exert a gentle grip, a masculine Saint Estephe that is harmonious and focused, the finish testifying that just the right amount of oak was employed. Great job here!
Wine Enthusiast: 92
Situated on the gravel plateau of Saint-Estèphe, this estate has produced a richly structured wine with fine tannins and dense black fruits. The 70% Cabernet Sauvignon offers black-currant flavors and acidity plus plenty of firm tannins for aging. Drink the wine from 2024.

The 2016 Laffitte-Carcasset feels a little ham-fisted on the nose compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with quite supple tannin, well balanced with fine acidity. Almost Stellenbosch-like on the finish with hints of liquorice and fynbos coming through with aeration. Fine. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.
