Legende R Médoc 2012 comes from neighbouring plots to the Domaines Barons de Rothschild's Vineyards.
Légende Médoc is made with all the care and attention that goes into the making of a Grand Cru.
The grapes (mainly Cabernet Sauvignon) come from selected plots and are required to meet the highest standards: yields are strictly limited – only perfectly ripe, healthy grapes that have reached optimum maturity are used.
Ageing takes place in barrel respecting traditional methods to create a wine that is Grand Cru worthy but at a snip of the price.
Tasting note:Subtle and aromatic, dominated by smoky, toasty and spicy notes. Opens up on aeration to reveal blackberry and blackcurrant aromas.Full bodied and fleshy, with an attractive sweetness on the front palate, ripe and velvety tannins, and a fresh and spicy finish.
