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.
The winter of 2018 was generally mild and dry until rainy weather arrived in March. A particularly wet spring held back the vine cycle, though vegetation growth accelerated in May and June in warmer-thanaverage weather. The vines continued
to develop throughout a hot and dry summer, producing grapes with rich and concentrated flavours. The presence and the expertise of Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s winemakers also helped to get the most out of the 2018 vintage. The rosé wines are highly expressive and very rich, displaying an attractive density as well as a particular freshness due to the
expression of the Cabernet grapes.
