Baron Philippe de Rothschild
Baron Philippe de Rothschild makes varietal wines from the south of France, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The Domaine also makes wines using grapes from the Uco Valley. The name Rothschild first emerged from the obscurity of the Frankfurt back streets 200 years ago. It quickly became a synonym for quality and excellence, whether in the field of financial services, wine, science, fine art of architecture. Across two centuries and many generations, the Rothschild emphases have remained unchanged – on innovation, industriousness and above all on the strength which lies in unity.
Red fruit, cherry and raspberry aromas enhanced by touches of spice. Round on the palate, flavours of morello cherry and blackberry with a hint of liquorice. The smooth finish, long and fresh, gives this very pleasant Merlot great character.
