The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
Baron Carl is one of the five Barons et Baronnes de Rothschild who have been honoured by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild company in this range of labels. Baron Carls wine represents Saint-Emilion with a blend measuring 82% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and matured in oak. After several years in the bottle, this wine offers a mature drinking experience at a brilliant price!
This is the third vintage of Enclos Tourmaline, the tiny parcel of vines in Pomerol which is demonstrating itself to produce some of the finest Merlot wines in the world! This Merlot is soft, fruity with a generous bouquet of black fruit and subtle spice, and in perfect balance.
