Country: France, Bordeaux
Tasting Notes: Merlot has expansive fruit flavours and rounded tannins, with an apparent softness that enables the wines to reach their peak rapidly. A deep ruby red. The nose reveals red fruit aromas, subtly mingled with notes of violet, spice and pepper. The attack is supple and round, with an attractive intensity of flavour supported by silky tannins, leading into a dense and succulent mid-palate and a long, highly elegant finish.
Varietal: 100% Merlot
Pairing: Serve Baron Philippe de Rothschild Merlot 2015 with white meat, charcuterie, boiled beef and vegetables, thick-cut beef steak or cheese.
