    The elegance and minerality of a generous white wine by Mouton Rothschild

    The estate
    It was in 1853 that Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Chateau Brane-Mouton at auction. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in the appellation of Pauillac, the estate was renamed Chateau Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the property. A visionary, he decided to initiate bottling directly at the estate and also designed a label for the wine. In 1973 Château Mouton Rothschild became a First Classified Growth. An icon of the Pauillac appellation, Chateau Mouton Rothschild has produced magnificent Bordeaux wines, known by wine lovers around the world.

    The vineyard
    Located north-west of Bordeaux, in the Medoc, the Chateau Mouton Rothschild vineyard covers 90 hectares. The vines are planted in stony, gravelly soils that capture the heat and restore it during the night, thus helping the grapes ripen. These poor, well-drained soils are lain over clay-gravelly subsoils, lending the wines of Chateau Mouton Rothschild a certain power, elegance and a tannic structure.

    The vintage
    After a milder-than-average winter and a cool spring, June was marked by heavy precipitation. It was in July that summer made its great appearance with high temperatures and some precipitation, which prevented the vines from suffering too much water stress. At Château Mouton Rothschild, the 2019 harvest began on September 5 with white grape varieties. The harvest of the vines dedicated to the production of Aile d’Argent was completed on September 11.

    The blend
    Sauvignon blanc (61%), sémillon (38%), muscadelle (1%).

    The tasting
    Tasted as a wine future, the Aile d'Argent white 2019 from Chateau Mouton Rothschild presents a beautiful, iridescent yellow color with bright green reflections. The aromatic bouquet immediately charms the nose with its intense notes of exotic fruits, yellow fruits and floral fragrances evoking sweet acacia. On the palate, the wine gradually reveals its fullness and structure. The minerality and freshness of the vintage lend a brilliant depth to the palate. Gourmet apricot notes and mineral notes of "gun flint" punctuate the finish, which stretches out long, elegant and persistent.
