Légende Bordeaux blanc

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

The vintage
2019 was a year of contrasts, characterized by tremendous variation. The spring was cool, and then June was cold and rainy, which disrupted flowering, resulting in some coulure and seedless berries. The summer brought soaring temperatures and the weather remained dry for the rest of the growing season, thereby preventing the vines developing any diseases. However, the water stress, which varied depending on the area and the terroir, also resulted in some instances of ripening being checked. The berries remained small, resulting in lower than usual yields. The white grapes, whose harvest began in early September, were of excellent quality: very aromatic, with good acidity and freshness on the palate.
Varietals
Sauvignon blanc : 85%
Sémillon : 15%

Tasting notes
Pretty, pale colour with light straw-coloured highlights.
Expressive nose, offering a fine aromatic palette with a mixture of floral and mineral notes, underscored by tropical fruit (lychee, lime).
In the mouth, the wine is aromatic and fresh, with a pleasant citrus finish, the roundness of the Sémillon perfectly balancing the liveliness of the Sauvignon Blanc.
