Description

  • French oak
  • Red currant
  • Raspberry
  • Silky tannins

Deep crimson with an intense, very expressive nose dominated by fresh fruit aromas (red currant, raspberry) blended with discreet notes of oak. The palate is structured, round and easy, nicely oaked with firm but silky tannins and a long, fresh and fruity finish. Decant about 1 hour and drink between 16 - 18°C.

A wine for everyday, for a dinner with friends, or a glass in front of the fire, the Légende Bordeaux Rouge is a well-balanced blend of traditional grape varieties consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. As the main variety, the Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine the classic elegance of the Lafite style, while the ageing gives it charm and a well-rounded character.

2016 has been a remarkable vintage in the Bordeaux region, reminiscent of the legendary 1990 in terms of both quantity and quality! It was a fairly challenging year for winegrowers, with a very wet start to growth cycle (800mm 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 red wines are rich, smooth and fruity, with tannins of a rarely obtained maturity and very deep colours.
