    Barons de Rothschild
    In addition to the wines issued from their prestigious vineyards, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have been bottling for many years a range of wines which are pleasant to drink with friends. The Barons used to call these wines their "réserves." It is to recover the spirit of these "réserves" that the top managers of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) decided to release the Réserve Pauillac, the Réserve Médoc and finally the Réserve Bordeaux Red & White. These assemblages are under the permanent control of the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Technical Management and the production of these réserves benefits from the same care as that given to their great wines.

    Rhône White Blends

    View all wine

    Full-bodied and flavorful, Rhône white blends are made in France’s Rhone Valley and beyond, proving most successful in Spain, Australia, South America, and California’s Central Coast. They are made from a combination of two or more of the white varieties permitted in the Rhône, potentially including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier.

    In the Glass

    Each variety brings something different to the table. Round, textural Grenache Blanc contributes green apple and white stone fruit flavors; weighty Marsanne adds structure and delicate honeysuckle aromas; russet-colored Roussanne lends intriguing herbal, tea-like notes, and Viognier provides an oily texture and an elegant floral perfume. The flavor of the final wine will depend on the chosen components of the blend and their respective proportions.

    Perfect Pairings

    Since Rhône white blends tend to be fairly full-bodied, they can be quite versatile food pairing wines and can work with light to medium rich meals that might normally be matched with reds. Meatier fish dishes with bold seasoning like grilled swordfish with caper butter or baked, herb-crusted mahi mahi are natural allies for these flavorful wines. Other ideal dishes include roast pork in mustard sauce, poached lobster with beurre blanc, or a rich and savory vegetable quiche. `

    Sommelier Secret

    In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are most common, in the appellations of St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, and St-Péray (in Condrieu and Château-Grillet, whites are made from Viognier only). The Southern Rhône, on the other hand, has much more variety, with many more permitted grapes including Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul Blanc, and Ugni Blanc.
