Le Reflet de Laffitte Carcasset
2020 ranks among the great vintages. It is the perfect example of Bordeaux know-how: a sunny but fresh vintage, with minerality and tension and a promising aging potential.
2018 is a sunny and demanding vintage. After a mild but rainy spring, marked by strong mildew pressure, the lasting sunshine saved the vintage. The hot summer temperatures have benefited the beautiful clayey gravel soils, which are particularly favoured in dry years.
Black fruits, blackberries and cherries aromas in the nose with slightly woody notes. The palate is round and fruity, the tannins are mellow. The Reflet de Laffitte Carcasset 2016 is a very pleasant wine to taste in its youth but can be easily cellared for 4 to 6 years.
