Reviews of purchase Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Bordeaux AOC Blanc, 2011
Wine delicate straw color with a pleasant golden overflow.
Well-balanced, elegant and refreshing wine with bright notes and a long aftertaste, which is dominated by citrus notes.
When you are opening the bottle immediately appear fresh, bright honeysuckle fragrance of flowers that complement the citrus fruit notes and sweet peach.
The wine goes well with salads, snacks, molluscs, small crustaceans, fried fish, and poultry in a light sauce.
