The 2016 Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Legende Bordeaux Rouge begins with a very pleasant aroma of black cherry and plum along with seamless touches of baking spice. The wine tastes smooth and full of fresh berry fruit with more spice and silky tannins. It gains complexity as it has time in the glass so be sure to give it plenty of air. It ends dry with a very long lasting finish. Everything just goes together very nicely which means this bottle won’t last long! It may have a big, expensive name but this one delivers the goods well under $20.
