Clay-limestone and gravelly clay soil from the Côtes de Blaye and the north-east of Entre-Deux-Mers. The clay soil gives the wines plenty of fruit, while the limestone and gravelly soils bring freshness and elegance.
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, producing fruit-driven rosé wines that display excellent balance between freshness and aromatic complexity.
