Winemaker's Notes

#84 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Its special soil yields mellow, fruity wines with a distinctive yet harmonious character and a rich bouquet. The harvest is matured in new and year-old casks that confer smoothness, elegance and finesse – female traits befitting the Baroness Nadine de Rothschild.

Malmaison wine is best stored at a constant temperature of 12 to 14 degrees and should be brought up from the cellar several hours before serving. At an ideal temperature of 16 degrees, it provides an outstanding accompaniment for lamb, fowl and small game (partridge or pheasant, for example).

Critical Acclaim

"Blackberry and raspberry jam aromas follow through to a full body, with very soft tannins and pretty berry and currant character. This is seamless and well done for the vintage. Best after 2012. 8,330 cases made. "
