BACKGROUND

The prestigious Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) family has owned vineyards in Bordeaux for generations. In addition to the wines issued from their world renowned vineyards, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) has been elaborating a range of wines which are easy and pleasant to drink called “Légende”. Inspired by a grand tradition of quality, the Domaines teams have one priority: selection. Their mastery and perfect knowledge of Bordelais cépages are responsible for the unparalleled quality of their wines.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

2016 has been a remarkable vintage in the Bordeaux region, reminiscent of the legendary 1990 in terms of both quantity and quality. A very wet start to the growth cycle (more than 31 inches of rain over the first six months of the year), followed by a very dry period from July 1st to September 13th, and finally localized thunderstorms and a beautiful Indian summer that enabled the grapes to reach optimal ripeness. The cooler terroirs produced perfect balances of alcohol and acidity, and very exuberant aromas. The grapes were then harvested from September 5th -13th.

TASTING NOTES

Pale straw color color. On the nose, refined and aromatic, combining citrus notes (grapefruit, lime) with aromas of exotic fruit (passion fruit). On the palate, fresh, lively and seductive, very aromatic. Exotic notes on the finish.
