Vinification: In order to obtain aromatic and expressive wines, the grapes are tasted before picking. The grapes from each parcel are vinified separately to reveal all the expression of the terroir. They are destemmed and lightly crushed, then macerated on their skins in order to delicately extract all their aromas and flavours. After pressing and cold settling, alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperature (18°C) to preserve all the primary aromas.

Maturing: Matured in vats without exposure to air and bottled at their Saint-Laurent-Médoc winery in order to preserve all their freshness and fruit.

Grape Variety: Baron Philippe de Rothschild Viognier 2014 is made entirely from a single variety. A rare and rather capricious grape, Viognier produces wines of exceptional quality, full-bodied but delicately fragrant.

Tasting Notes: A crystalline pale yellow. The highly intense nose reveals delicate aromas of white blossom such as acacia and hawthorn, perfectly mingled with refinement of citrus zest. The full, rich almost creamy attack reveals the succulence of apricot and pear, accompanied by notes of honey and toast on the mid-palate and building to a long, fruit driven finish.

Food Pairing: Baron Philippe de Rothschild Viognier 2015 works well with fresh goat's cheese, deserts.
