Collection: Domaines Barons de Rothschild DBR (Lafite) - France



The 167 hectare vineyard is situated close to Narbonne, in the Corbières wine appellation, at the heart of the “Fontfroide terroir”. The soil is very shallow and stony on the higher slopes, and becomes deeper and sandier in the plains. In some parts of the vineyard, outcrops of pink sandstone make mechanical work difficult.

Two thirds of the vineyard are in the Corbières AOC appellation (grape varieties: Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault) and one third in the Vin de Pays d’Oc appellation (Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot).

The vineyard is managed in the traditional Corbières style with 4,400 vines/ha trained on trellises. As the vineyard is still young, yields have been kept very low (around 35 hl/ha), to encourage strong root development and the vine’s structure while at the same time ensuring a very high quality harvest. On the basis of the excellent results that have been achieved, it was decided, as the vines now begin to mature, to continue this practice.

The property is managed by Olivier Richaud, Domaine d’Aussières’ Manager accompanied by the estate team – notably Mathieu Mocquet, Cellar and Production Manager, and Jean-Charles Forge, Vineyard Manager. Olivier Trégoat, Technical Director of Château Rieussec, Château L’Evangile, Château Paradis Casseuil and Long Dai provides technical support.



Bordeaux in our roots for generations

The Lafite Rothschild family has been producing wine in Bordeaux since 1868. For six generations, they got to know this beautiful landscape and understand the unique traits of the vines from each appellation. Three decades ago, the family was inspired to create a new wine series, where each wine would be the epitome of the appellation it came from. 

Their motivation was simple – to ensure wine lovers everywhere could dive into Bordeaux and taste the originality of each appellation. 

And so, Les Légendes R range was born.


A wine from a family of wine producers with a reputation such as Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) must be among the best of its kind in every appellation. The wines in the Collection are made under the supervision of oenologist, Diane Flamand, with the same care and attention to detail as is applied to the Grands Vins.

The Pauillac and Médoc wines are produced from DBR (Lafite)’s own vineyards and from neighbouring vineyards. For the Bordeaux appellations, the technical team selects the terroirs and supervises the vinification of the grapes from partner suppliers.

The Bordeaux Rouge and Blanc are made from selections of the finest production in the Entre-Deux-Mers region. As early as possible after fermentation, the DBR (Lafite) team selects the best batches of wine after successive blind tastings, enabling them not only to ensure top quality wine but also to control each stage of the winemaking and ageing. The aim, quite simply, is to produce excellent wines, which truly reflect the DBR (Lafite) house style.
