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

The vintage
2019 was a year of contrasts, characterized by tremendous variation. A cool spring, scorching heat in the summer and dry weather throughout the year prevented the development of diseases. However, cold, rainy weather in June disrupted flowering, causing coulure and millerandage. Furthermore, water stress, which varied depending on the area and the terroir, resulted in some instances of ripening being checked. The berries were therefore small, resulting in lower than usual yields. Fortunately, there was some rain after 22 September, which relaunched the ripening process and enabled the red grape varieties to reach a good level of maturity.
Varietals
Cabernet sauvignon : 55%
Merlot : 45%

Tasting notes
Ruby red colour with good intensity.
Refined, elegant nose, combining aromas of sweet spices (such as vanilla and cinnamon) with subtle oaky notes. On the palate, the attack is full-bodied and round, with good tannic structure and ends with a long, flavourful finish. A fine example of the 2019 vintage in Bordeaux.
