Ideal with red meats, plates of medium flavors and hard cheeses.
Color:Red of good intensity.
Nose: Intense aromas resemble ripe cherries and raspberries that combined with the slight vanilla give elegance and fineness to this wine.
Palate:In mouth, it appears soft and silky, with rounds tannins. It is a wine of a medium structure, thought for a short guard, because the freshness and smoothness are its major virtue.

In 1953, Edmond de Rothschild set up the Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild in Paris. This laid the groundwork for the international group through the acquisition of the Geneva-based private banking practice in 1965 and the opening of a branch in Luxembourg three years later.
In 1989, his 23-year-old son, Benjamin de Rothschild, founded the Compagnie de Trésorerie to offer advanced financial risk management services. Following the death of his father in 1997, Benjamin de Rothschild became president of the Group.
Ariane de Rothschild, his wife, was appointed vice-president of the Group in 2009, and was nominated chief executive of Group in January 2015.
In 2010, the LCF Rothschild (La Compagnie financière) group changed its name to Edmond de Rothschild as a tribute to its founder. According to Benjamin de Rothschild, "the Edmond de Rothschild group gathered all its banking and non-banking activities under the new heading to clarify and strengthen the Group's identity".
