Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Legende R Médoc 2016 Review

At this price if this bottle is your first Bordeaux you will have a great idea of why wines from here are so dope. It has power and elegance hidden under a tannin structure that is still softening. It is drinking well now, and will pair with a big ‘ol steak. But if you buy a few, since it’s so affordable, you can watch the vintage fold into itself over a few years or less ,and switch that steak for a roast chicken and feel that elegance work.
