Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, Moulis-en-Médoc, France
Château Malmaison 2016
Château Malmaison, located in the Moulis‑en‑Médoc appellation (Bordeaux, Left Bank), is one of the oldest wineries in the Médoc, with vines being cultivated there since the Middle Ages. The property adjacent to Château Clarke was acquired in 1973 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Under his leadership, the vineyard was redesigned and the buildings completely renovated.
Baron Edmond de Rothschild then named this wine in honour of his wife, Baroness Nadine de Rothschild. Passionate about the art of gardening, she created a whimsical garden in which roses and jacarandas take center stage.
Deep crimson colour.
The extremely elegant nose offers aromas of black fruit with a touch of liquorice combined with lovely floral notes, enhanced by subtle roasted fragrances.
The palate is full and dense starting with the attack, underpinned by an amazing freshness up to the finish where the still young tannins are well defined.
This wine has an ageing potential about 15 years but is also enjoyable when young.
Ageing potential through to 2031.
