The Légende R Rouge from Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is an impressive, elegant and expressive red wine cuvée from the French wine-growing region of Bordeaux, vinified from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a deep ruby red with crimson highlights. The elegant bouquet smells of ripe berries - especially red currant and raspberry) and is surrounded by a subtle oak note. The round body on the palate of this French red wine is compelling with firm, silky tannins and a wonderful fresh, fruity personality. The fullness of fruit is also present in the long finish.

After the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are harvested, the grapes are immediately taken to the winery of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). The berries are first fermented in stainless steel tanks.
