Overview of the Wine
Produced by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), Légende R Saint-Emilion is an harmonious blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Legende offers consumers a journey through the different terroirs and tastes of the heralded Bordeaux region through the eyes of one of the region’s most prestigious producers, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). “It all started in the nineties. They wanted to offer their consumers a discovery of the different terroirs and tastes of Bordeaux. A name had to be found. A name that could live up to the expectations. A hint to the Rothschild family and the rich history of Chateau Lafite. A legende was born.” Crafted by long-time Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) winemaker, Diane Flamand, Legende wines demonstrate a remarkable balance between tradition and modernity. With a product range that includes each of the five major appellations in Bordeaux: Bordeaux Rouge, Bordeaux Blanc, Medoc, Saint-Emilion and Pauillac, Legende wines have an approachable style, inspired by every day drinkability and enjoyment.

Refined and aromatic, the nose combines aromas of leather and sweet spices with woody notes. Rounded, full-bodied attack; this is a supple wine with plump, soft tannins, and a pleasantly fresh finish.
Colour: Ruby of medium intensity.
Nose: Intense and complex nose, with aromas of wax, exotic woods, cocoa powder.
Palate: Balanced and flattering, medium structure with fine and elegant tannins, and long aromatic persistence.
