Légende R
Made by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) team with the same care and passion that is given to their grands crus, Légende R wines offer a great discovery of Bordeaux terroirs and tastes.

The vintage
Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2016 has a surprising, distinctive character that results in an intense tasting experience. All the criteria are fulfilled to take the palate on a real journey. 2016 was an exceptional vintage for Bordeaux, remarkable in its delicacy and finesse, making it comparable to the legendary 1990, in terms of both quantity and quality. The growth cycle began with a mild, rainy winter, followed by a very wet, cold spring which, fortunately, did not impede flowering. The dry, hot summer that followed continued into a magnificent Indian summer with some very welcome rain, enabling the grapes to reach perfect maturity. This exceptional terroir and this landmark vintage give the wine a substance that is both robust and refined, with a perfect combination of roundness and power.

Tasting notes
Deep crimson-purple colour.
Intense and complex nose, mingling vanilla and tobacco notes. The palate is full, rich and unctuous, with a silky tannic structure and a nice spicy aftertaste.
