ABOUT THE WINES
Rothschild Brut NV
The first collective Rothschild family project for 160 years. Chardonnay based, low dosage and an excellent aperitif style Champagne. Small production, “not-on-the-High-street”.
Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc
From Lafite’s estate in Chile. An off-dry classic Chilean style Sauvignon Blanc with asparagus and sherbet notes. Crisp and refreshing throughout and on the finish.
Bodegas Escudo Chardonnay
Mouton’s estate in Chile. A fuller-bodied style that works well with food. Subtle notes of oak and tropical fruits yet dry, well-knit and a serious wine.
Amancaya Cabernet-Malbec (Bodegas Caro)
From Bodegas Caro in Argentina, an extremely classy wine with notes of red and black-berry. Good structure and very more-ish indeed.
Lafite’s flagship wine from this classy Argentinian estate. Lafite ship their grand-cuvee barrels to the estate for the wine’s maturation enabling the wine to mature and age and develop leaving elegant, Chateau Lafite-esq signature notes on the wine.
Arguably the finest wine from Chile today. A collaboration between Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Concha Y Torro. A powerful yet elegant full-bodied red wine that works equally well with red meat or dark chocolate.
