Made by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) team with the same care and passion that is given to their grands crus, Saga R wines offer a great discovery of Bordeaux terroirs and tastes.
2018 will no doubt be one of Bordeaux’s great vintages, despite some particularly capricious weather: an exceptionally rainy winter and spring resulted in an unprecedented threat of mildew, the like of which had not been seen in living memory; May and July then brought devastating hailstorms that destroyed up to 80% of some vineyards. Fortunately, the situation improved dramatically over the summer, which was the hottest since 2003. Conditions were ideal for the grapes to ripen: the contrast between warm, sunny days and cool nights resulted in good aromatic concentration and an excellent balance of sugar and acidity. The wines from the cool clay soils of the Entre-Deux-Mers are generous, deep in colour, with more alcohol than in 2017 but retaining their freshness.
Nice colour with glints of crimson. Seductive nose, offering a broad aromatic palette in which scents of red fruit and blackberries mingle with roasted notes of mocha and toast from the barrel ageing. On the palate, the wine is generous and balanced, with a pleasant freshness and superb long finish.
