Baron Philippe de Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Escudo Rojo 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Chilean wines can often be rather unsubtle, the fruit and the alcohol sometimesdisjointed. The Red Shield, to give a direct translation, is a masterpiece ofharmony and elegance, a new style New World classic. Escudo Roso represents anambitious venture of Baron de Phillippe Rothischild wines in the Maipo andRapel Valleys in Chile.

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc, with a range of varietal wines and, more recently, Domaine de Baron'arques; to California, with Opus One; and to Chile, with Almaviva. One of the key factors behind the company's undisputed success is the art of blending, which it practises with exceptional skill. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the majority shareholder of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, works closely with the executive directors to maintain, modernise and develop the family business.

Wanted to try a Mouton from Chile. Quite similar to the Los Vascos (Lafite) in picking up green peppers and definitely a more vegetal wine. Not bad at it's price point.

Nice nose of chocolate powder and dried plums. There's a whiff of green peppers too, but it works well. Its fruity, rich and tasty, but there's still that vegetal note in it - overall it works. Nice, well priced, a lot of wine for the money.

Took a while for this wine to open. Deserves the 88 points from WS. Nothing surprising about it. Price in Brazil R$ 95 or US$ 48.

A Claret-like blend with sweet aromas of raisins, dark berries, smoke and tobacco. Great concentration and length.
