Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample with me.
If you haven’t read about the marking issue here, please go to this link and read up. They do an amazing job of writing.
So there you have it. If you didn’t click the link above, I’ll say it quickly: There’re two different wineries in France with a name Lafitte. One is Lafite and one is Lafitte. I’m thinking of starting one called Laffitte to really help make confusion.
The expensive Lafite makes Bordeaux red wines that are pricey. Thus the casks have some inherent money behind them due to the transitive policy of quality. I’m not 100% sold that the cask of something nice imparts quality if you missed that sarcasm.
The cheaper, $20 a bottle, not in the Bordeaux region red wine is made by the double “T” Lafitte winery. And that’s where the casks came from.
