Les Légendes 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, the Les Légendes R range was born.

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. A cold and rainy June, together with water stress that varied depending on the area and type of soil, first disrupted flowering and then blocked the ripening process. The berries were therefore small, resulting in lower than usual yields. Fortunately, a rainy spell arrived on 22 September, which relaunched the ripening and enabled the red grape varieties to reach a very good level of maturity. The white grapes, whose harvest began in early September, were of excellent quality: very aromatic, with good acidity and freshness on the palate.

Tasting notes
Beautiful, deep crimson-purple colour.
Intense, expressive nose offers an explosion of aromas with dark berries, cashew nuts and dried flowers. On the palate, the wine is generous, silky and structured, with a pleasant freshness and an exceptionally long finish.
