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.
A lovely, deep and glittering ruby red, the wine has a subtle and pleasant nose with a seductive aromatic complexity. On airing, scents of rose and peony mingle with notes of blackberry, raspberry and jammy fruit, enhanced by attractive toasted aromas. The attack is clearly defined and full and the well-balanced palate reveals black fruit flavours together with notes of roasted coffee and cocoa. The mid-palate is dense and pleasantly fresh, with a fine tannic structure, while the long and succulent finish displays pleasant coffee and spice notes.
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.
