Baron Philippe de Rothschild St. Emilion 2000
The appellation takes its name from the famous mediaeval town of Saint-Emilion, a few kilometers north-east of Bordeaux. The vineyard, on the right bank Of the Dordogne, is bordered to the north, by the river Barbanne, to the east, by the slopes of Castillon, to the south, by the Dordogne plain, and to the west by the town of Libourne.
Saint-Emilion Baron Philippe is dominated by merlot (80%), a variety ideally suited to the appellation, especially the limestone soils on which it produces a supple and fruity wine that ages well. Cabernet sauvignon (12%) develops incomparable aromas and tannins that give the wine character and additional ageing potential; cabernet franc (8%) provides elegance.
The wines of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, s.a., a family firm, presided over today by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, are as much a matter of art as of technical expertise. Combining traditional know-how with experienced personnel and the most modern technology, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, with skill and dedication, transforms the gifts of nature, into works of art and sources of pleasure. The grapes or wines are selected and bought from growers who, over the years, have become true partners, and then vinified, blended and matured by the company’s œnologists at our Saint-Laurent-Médoc winery.
