Aging

To keep all the wine's freshness and refinement, it is matured in vats for 6 to 8 months before bottling. 100% stainless steel vats with regular stirring of the lees.

Tasting notes

The nose opens on powerful citrus fruit aromas, followed on airing by delicate notes of white blossom and tropical fruit. The refined and fresh attack reveals subtle notes of white blossom and guava, leading into an intense and dense midpalate marked by an explosion of citrus fruit flavors recalling the aromas found on the nose. White blossom flavors return on the elegantly mineral finish.

Vineyard

Baron Philippe de Rothschild Maipo Chile's winemakers have chosen the Valle de Casablanca vineyards for their mild climate, which allows the grapes to ripen slowly, and for their soil: silty sand, which favors the refinement and freshness of the fruit, and granitic soil closer to the coastal mountains, which brings elegance. The wines are fresh and mineral, while keeping a certain power and a remarkable balance between alcohol and acidity.

Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked so as to preserve all their freshness and aromatic potential. Everything is done to preserve the fruit and freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from maceration on the skins to cold pressing and alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures.
