Carruades features characteristics similar to those of the Grand Vin, but with its own personality linked to a higher percentage of Merlot and plots of land that are clearly identified as producing Carruades. The origin of the name comes from the Carruades plateau, the name of a group of plots adjacent to the chateau's best vineyards, purchased in 1845 by Château Lafite. In the 20th century, Carruades was marketed separately from Château Lafite before being integrated. The name Carruades adopted as the name of Château Lafite Rothschild's second wine, was initially called 'Moulin des Carruades' before the 1980s.
