Baron Philippe de Rothschild Bordeaux 2008

This adorable French wine is from the vineyards of one of the most famous winegrowers in France - Baron Philippe de Rothschild. When I read his biography I was shocked. He is not only a famous wine grower, but also a member of the Rothschild banking industry, a Grand Prix race-car driver, a screenwriter and playwright, a theatrical producer, a film producer and a poet. Well, how is this possible? Is he good in all these fields? At the moment I can only say about his wine. It was splendid! The wine is an aromatic bouquet of cherries and strawberries. Classical dry, the taste is well integrated and balanced. A pleasant, full aroma of dried fruits and light red dark shade of red. The grapes are 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Costing only about 8 Euro from supermarket, the wine is a good value for money.
