Pauillac

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 major impact 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 sunny September allowed the Cabernet Sauvignon to continue ripening, thereby favouring the Left Bank appellations. The 2017 Pauillac wines combine finesse and balance in a fresh, oceanic vintage.
Varietals
Cabernet sauvignon : 65%
Merlot : 35%

Tasting notes
Beautiful ruby-red colour with hints of brick.
The nose is complex with aromas of Morello cherries and liquorice. On the palate, the wine offers well-structured power and silky tannins, leading on to a long, fruity finish with notes of dark berries.
