Why We Love This Wine
The wines of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, a family firm presided over today by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, combines traditional know how with the most modern technology to transform the gifts of nature into works of art & sources of pleasure. This same spirit goes into this Cabernet Sauvignon of intense glittering crimson that is fresh & highly aromatric on the nose with notes of red currant & black currant with a touch of paprika. Full & powerful with fresh fruit flavors, it has a solid mid-palate finishing elegantly on firm tannins. Pair this wine with grilled red meat or beef stew, charcuterie, and semi-hard to hard cheeses.
Winemaker / Tasting Notes
Possessing an intense garnet color, the nose opens up with chili pepper and white pepper spice notes followed by fruity aromas of cherry, black berry fruit, redcurrant, and blackcurrant upon further airing. Full and powerful with an intense initial attack of black fruit flavours on the palate, it further displays a solid roundness with pepper & vanilla undertones mid-palate leading to an elegant finish complemented by firm tannins.
