Parker (92)

The 2008 Carruades de Lafite, made from yields of 46 hectoliters per hectare, is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Revealing an inky/ruby/purple color that is slightly less dense than the grand vin’s, it offers up beautiful aromas of graphite, smoke, black currants, and cedar. Very sexy in the fleshy style of the 2003, it is a succulent, hedonistic turn-on. Moreover, given the freshness and acid profile, it should drink well for 15-20 years.

Winespectator / James Suckling (87)

Still quite tight, with taut cedar, tangy damson plum and cherry pit notes around the edges, while the core of red cherry and fig has yet to fill in fully. There's a lean-edged finish as well.
