Hello wine lovers,

I recently won a case of Les Carruades Des Lafite '99 in a competition. I have been assured it has been stored correctly and i am storing it in a wine cellar belonging to an in-law. I dont know much about wine and ws wondering if anyone knows anything about this wine and would like to share their knowledge with me.

Spec's in Houston currently has it for $382.47 per case, or $34.93 per bottle. Haven't seen a review of it (you could probably find some with a Google search), but I'd hold it for a few years anyway.

Welcome to the board.

My guess is that it will drink fine in the '07 to '08 timeframe.

Recently tasted a bottle at Esquin. Big wine with a touch of lanolin on the nose and a big, sweet limestone note on the palate. Blackberries, candied cherry, and stewed plum, along with a bit of graphite on the palate. Closed now but promises a nice graceful maturity in maybe '07-'09.
