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.
A cabernet sauvignon which is medium-full bodied and firm. Deep purple in colour, intense cassis aromas and flavours with herbal notes. Firm tannins and raspberry notes in the finish.
Try with roasted duck breast with pecan purée, or port wine braised beef short ribs. A beautiful accompaniment also to beef tenderloin with blackberry dressing.
