Les Légendes ‘R’ St Emilion 2018, A.C. St Emilion


The Les Légendes range is created by the Domaines Barons de Rothschild team with the same care and passion that is applied to the creation of their Grand Cru wines. Les Légendes St Emilion 2018 is built in a modern style with oozing Merlot fruit in an exotic frame with smoky spicy nuances. The blend, consisting of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, is matured in French oak for a year which brings aging potential and helps to add toasty depth to the rich Merlot fruit.

Tasting notes

A deep ruby with shimmering highlights, this vintage looks the part in the glass. The nose doesn’t need much coaxing, a gentle swirl lifts toasted vanilla, morello cherry, blackberry, liquorice, cedar, toast and pepper. This exotic, sexy St Emilion is open and expressive from the off. Despite the accessibility, you could certainly cellar for a few years. But why wait when its this good now?
