Bordeaux Blanc

Légende R
The Lafite Rothschild family has been producing wine in Bordeaux since 1868. For six generations, they got to know this beautiful landscape and understand the unique traits of the vines from each appellation. Three decades ago, the family was inspired to create a new wine series, where each wine would be the epitome of the appellation it came from. Their motivation was simple – to ensure wine lovers everywhere could dive into Bordeaux and taste the originality of each appellation. And so, Légende R range was born.

The vintage
2022 is a vintage marked by certain climatic excesses which followed one another with varying degrees of intensity from April onwards (frost, hail, drought and heatwave) and will be remembered as one of the earliest vintages of the last 20 years. A mild and dry winter led to an early bud break, flowering was rapid and homogeneous thanks to the perfect climatic conditions (warm and dry) and the parasite pressure was very low. Thanks to the high water reserves of the year 2021, the vines resisted rather well to the heat wave and drought during the summer. Two welcome thunderstorms in August allowed all the grape varieties to finish their maturation in style. The first white grape harvests began on August 16.
Sauvignon blanc : 90%
Sémillon : 10%

Bright straw yellow colour.
Very aromatic and flattering nose, mixing floral notes (lily) with ripe fruit aromas (white peach, pineapple, lychee).
The mouth is ample, round, balanced with a good freshness on the finish. This wine can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif, or with fish and white meats.
