A remarkable collaboration between Lafite-Rothschild and Catena Zapata, Caro is a wine that combines prestige, prowess, and incredible affordability. Often making it an extremely popular wine with Cru clients.

 

Dominated by Malbec and blended with 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, Caro 2017 is sourced from prime parcels in Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. It is also a fairly rare wine with only 3,000 – 6,000 cases of production each vintage.

 

The 2017 is tremendously successful, achieving a whopping 97 points from James Suckling who praised its “tight and contracted” structure whilst showcasing “a level of shyness to its strength”. Well supported by Decanter’s Alejandro Iglesias, he awarded the wine a magnificent 96 points and applauded its “velvety feel, rich texture and fine tannin” (DC).

Producer

This unbeatable collaboration marries the old world expertise of Lafite's Domaine Barons de Rothschild with the new world innovation of highly-acclaimed Argentinian producer Catena Zapata. The resulting wine is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec that is the best of both worlds, and as always, available at an unbeatable price. Always in high-demand, this is a wine that sells out fast so don't delay in snapping up as much as possible.
