The vineyard comprises three large areas: the hillsides around the Château, the Carruades plateau adjoining to the west and a 4.5 hectare plot in the neighboring commune of Saint-Estèphe. The surface area is 112 ha, it is a land of fine, deep gravel mixed with aeolian sands on a subsoil of tertiary limestone, well drained and well exposed.

The grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%).

The average age of the vines is 39 years, but it should be noted that vines less than 10 years old do not enter the great wine, which means that the age of the vines giving the great wine is rather around 45 years on average. The oldest parcel, called "La Gravière", was planted in 1886.

The management of the estate has been carried out since 1962 by a single team supervising Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Duhart-Milon, given the contiguity of the two properties.  

Second wine: Les Carruades de Lafite
