Additional Details

Crafted by the Lafite-Rothschild winemaking team, this is a classic approachable expression of the Médoc. 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 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.

VINTAGE NOTES: 2016 has been a remarkable vintage in the Bordeaux region, reminiscent of the legendary 1990 in terms of both quantity and quality! It was, however, a difficult year for winegrowers, with a very wet start to the growth cycle (31inches of rain over the first six months of the year), a very dry period from 1 July to 13 September, and finally localized thunderstorms and a beautiful Indian summer that enabled the grapes to reach optimal ripeness. The wines are rich, smooth and fruity, with tannins of a rarely obtained maturity and very deep colours. The left bank and the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have produced the vintage’s most successful wines.

WINEMAKING: The harvest took place from September 22nd to October 20th. Vinification took place in stainless steel vats and alcohol fermentation took place at 86°F, maceration took approximately 2-3 weeks. 50% of the final blend is aged in barrels.
