Marks and reviews
Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at auction in 1853. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in Pauillac, he renamed the property Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the estate. A visionary, he decided to start bottling the wine directly on the estate, while at the same time designing the label. 1973 was the year Château Mouton Rothschild became a Premier Cru Classé. An emblem of the Pauillac appellation, Château Mouton Rothschild has helped the great wines of Bordeaux to shine throughout the world.
Aile d'Argent 2022 is a Bordeaux dry white wine produced by Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, north-west of Bordeaux. The vines are planted on gravelly soils that trap heat and release it during the night, helping the grapes to ripen. These poor, draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving Château Mouton Rothschild wines their unique power, elegance and structure.
The year 2022 is characterised by a hot, dry climate, although punctuated by rainy spells that recharge the soil. Despite the extreme heat waves, the vines adapted thanks to their deep roots. Flowering starts ten days early, and the grapes ripen in perfect conditions. Harvesting begins early in September, and the grapes are harvested with exceptional concentration and balance.
Sauvignon Blanc (52%)
Sauvignon Gris (8%)
The nose reveals citrus fragrances mixed with hints of acacia honey and verbena.
The palate is gourmet, enticing with its fruity structure (white fruits), mineral character and floral notes.
