2018 Baronesa P. represents a selection of the finest micro-terroirs, selected over a period of several years based on experience and understanding of the soils and vineyards. Over many years and after producing countless batches, they refined their selection to create this cuvée in honor of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild.
James Suckling: 97 Points
This is a new, prestige wine from the Rothschild family (Mouton) that shows complexity and strength yet at the same time polish and poise. It’s full-bodied, but very layered and refined with fine layers of tannins and a spearmint and menthol undertone to the currants and dark fruit. This needs three or four years to come together. Great debut. 76% cabernet sauvignon, 9% carmenere and equal measures of syrah, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Better after 2023 and onwards.
