Baron Phillippe de Rothschild Cadet d'Oc Chardonnay 2009
Thanks to Baron Philippe de Rothschild's know-how and blending skills this wine, in its inimitable style, expresses all the richness of the Pays d'Oc: fresh and fruity, it reveals refined and complex flavors of tropical fruit, toast, and hazelnut. Brilliant yellow color. Subtle aromas of peach and white blossoms, with a touch of lightly toasted brioche. The attack artfully combines suppleness and distinction. The full-bodied and ample mid-palate, bursting with fruit, also displays an attractive minerality that reveals the elegance of white blossoms, leading into a long and fresh finish. Pair with fish fritter, mussels, lasagna, or stuffed escalope of veal.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., established in 1933, is located at Pauillac in the Medoc. Famous for two centuries, first in banking then in wine, the Rothschild name comes from the German phrase "Das Rote Schild"—a reference to the Red Shield which originally served as the family sign. They have been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category—from the chateaux wines like the renowned Chateau Mouton Rothschild, their flagship wine, to branded wines such as the famous Mouton Cadet. In the south of France, the Pays d'Oc offers an extraordinary variety of terroirs. Among them, Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers have selected the best parcels for growing the Cabernet Sauvignon grape.
