  • 2016 Vintage
    2016 Vintage Very mild weather in winter and spring was followed by a relatively dry summer. Rain in early September enabled the grapes to reach perfect maturity and the harvest took place in ideal conditions. In addition, the presence in the vineyards and the expertise of Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s winemakers helped to get the best out of the conditions and ensure a fine vintage, with the cool terroirs of the Bordeaux region producing aromatic and very fresh white wines.
