This 17th Century estate was purchased by the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and her two sons in 1998 and has since undergone extensive renovation.
Located in the Saint Polycarp commune, near the town of Limoux in the Aude Valley district of the Languedoc Roussillon, the estate has 118 hectares under vine. Output is made up predominately with red varietals, Grencahe, Syrah and Malbec from the Mediterranean and Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Atlantic.
An attractive, dark and deep garnet red, the wine has an intense and precise nose that opens on delicate aromas of spices, roses and plums macerated in spirits. Some roasted, toasted notes appear with airing.
From a supple and highly refined attack, the mid-palate rapidly emerges on smooth, patrician tannins enhanced by a youthful freshness.
The fruit, already there in the background, comes into its own, giving a harmonious, long and opulent finish.
All the wines at the estate are under the direct supervision of the Chateau Mouton Rothschild technical team and proudly take their place among the elite brands of Baron Philippe de Rothschild.
