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
The late frosts that ravaged Bordeaux’s vineyards and many other wine regions in France and Europe on 27 and 28 April had a dramatic effect on the 2017 vintage. The harvest was the smallest recorded since 1991. Fortunately, the wines produced by the properties that were spared by the frost proved to be of excellent quality. The 2017 Bordeaux reds present finesse and balance in a fresh, oceanic vintage with lots of fruit and well-rounded flavours.
Varietals
Cabernet sauvignon : 60%
Merlot : 40%

Tasting notes
Nice colour with glints of crimson. Seductive nose, offering a broad aromatic palette in which scents of red fruit and blackberries mingle with roasted notes of mocha and toast from the barrel ageing. On the palate, the wine is generous and balanced, with a pleasant freshness and superb long finish.
