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 attention to detail goes in this medium bodied Merlot with aromas of red berries, spice, vegetable, & wood notes. It is soft, fruity, & smooth with a generous mouthfeel & great character displaying wonderful flavors of cherry, raspberry, & spice with silky tannins culminating in a long & highly elegant finish. This wine will go perfectly with white meat, Charcuterie, Boiled Beef & Vegetables, thick cut Beef Steak, and Cheese.
Clearly reflecting color hues of dark crimson, this beautiful French Merlot opens up with a nose jammy red currant & cherry fruit followed by blackberry notes with a touch of cinnamon spice upon further airing. The initial attack on the palate is clean, supple, and round with cherry, blackberry, and bilberry fruit flavours emerging at mid-palate as it builds up to a richly structured finish with powerful but well-integrated tannins.
