“I took it with an octopus and liked it. The first time I drank it with people from Barons Edmond & Benjamim Rothschild.
Its intense colour attracted me. The smell of this Barons Edmond & Benjamim Rothschild Bordeaux Légende R reminds me somehow a menthol candy. Correct acidity.”

A structured red wine with the traditional elegance of Château Lafite - Barons de Rothschild, perfect throughout the meal but ideal with dishes of white meat or red bases. Intense purple with purple hues. rich and intense aroma with notes of graphite, ripe black berry fruit and coffee flavors. Initially pulpy, very structured in the mouth with flavors of undergrowth. Persistent finish, fresh and spicy.”
