Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for the Aile d’Argent 2023 wine

Tasting

Colour
With a beautiful pale yellow hue, the colour is adorned with green reflections.

Nose
Expressive, the nose reveals intense fragrances of citrus, white and exotic fruits as well as notes of white pepper

Palate
A fresh attack with lively lemony and spicy notes precedes a creamy palate whose aromas of pastry, feijoa and apricot stretch harmoniously to a toasted and grilled finish.

The vivacity and aromatic expression of a dry white Bordeaux wine

The estate

It was in 1853 that Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at auction. The estate, located in the heart of the Médoc, in Pauillac, was then renamed Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1922, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the estate. Visionary, he decided to initiate in 1924 the complete bottling at the château while entrusting the illustration of the cru label to an artist. Each year since 1945, the label of Château Mouton Rothschild is illustrated by the original work of a great contemporary artist. Dalí, César, Miró, Chagall, Warhol, Soulages, Bacon, Balthus, Tàpies, Koons, Doig… an exciting collection that grows each year with a new work and constitutes the famous exhibition "Art and Label". Emblem of the Pauillac appellation, this Premier Cru Classé makes the great wines of Bordeaux shine throughout the world. Today, it is the three children of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Camille and Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild who preside over the destiny of Château Mouton Rothschild.

The vineyard

Aile d'Argent is a dry white Bordeaux wine produced by Château Mouton Rothschild located northwest of Bordeaux, in Pauillac. Covering an area of 9 hectares, this terroir with vines averaging 14 years old is planted on pebbly gravel soils that capture heat and release it during the night, thus promoting the ripening of the grapes. These draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving the wines of Château Mouton Rothschild a unique power, elegance and structure.

The vintage

Mild and relatively humid, the spring promotes rapid vegetative growth. The bud break in early April is not impacted by the frost episode at this time. Flowering is recorded at the end of May with a 5-day lead. Despite June being recognised as the hottest since 1962, the vineyard maintains its lead. The end of summer is punctuated by two heatwave episodes at the end of August and beginning of September before the start of the harvest, which is partly carried out under unstable conditions.

Blend

Sauvignon Blanc (50%)
Sémillon (44.5%)
Sauvignon Gris (5%)
