Les Légendes Pauillac 2020, Lafite Rothschild
£31.95 per bottle
NEW 2020 VINTAGE - FIRST UK RELEASE
Cabernet sauvignon 60%, Merlot 40%
Deep ruby red color.
Intensely cocoa- and coconut-scented nose from barrel aging. With swirling, balsamic notes appear, such as caramel, which combine with hints of sweet spices like clove. On the palate, it is a typical and very elegant Pauillac, at the same time robust, dense, and very aromatic.
The Lafite Rothschild family has been producing wine in Bordeaux since 1868. For six generations, they got to know this beautiful landscape and understand the unique traits of the vines from each appellation. Three decades ago, the family was inspired to create a new wine series, where each wine would be the epitome of the appellation it came from. Their motivation was simple – to ensure wine lovers everywhere could dive into Bordeaux and taste the originality of each appellation. And so, the Les Légendes R range was born.
