I bought some bottles of Carruades de Lafite 2015 through internet. Good colour. Noticeable aromas of cherry and licorice. Very light and pleasent wine in the mouth.

Cherry colour. It has currant scents. It reminded me of licorice. We drank it just like that, without food to accompany. Great for romantic evenings.
