Laffitte Carcasset draws its name from two sources. Josef Lafitte was the attorney for the King of France, whose family owned the estate until 1838 when it changed hands. The name Carcasset comes from the name for the lieu-dit from which it was situated. Through the years, the chateau has changed hands and names a handful of times. In 2016, the estate was sold and now has a new owner as well as a new advisor. Hubert de Bouard, the new advisor, has increased the quality of the wines in a short period of time.
The average age of the vines are 30 years, composed of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and a bit of Cabernet Franc.
