|Join us on Thursday, March 25th for a tasting of Chilean wines from Escudo Rojo Winery. Owned and managed by the Baron Phillippe de Rothschild family, Escudo produces wines of noble pedigree under the guiding hand of one of the wine world’s most respected names. Joining our Bottle Pro hosts will be guest speaker Alejandro Flores. As East Coast Sales Manager for Baron Phillipe de Rothschild, Alejandro offers a wealth of knowledge about Chilean wine and the Rothschild organization. This may be one of the best Virtual Tastings we ever have the privilege of hosting. |
The Rothschild name is synonymous with quality wine across every price point. From everyday drinking wines the likes of Mouton Cadet ($10) to collector grade wines meant for decades of cellaring, they excel at everything they touch. To offer some perspective, this family owns First Growth Bordeaux, Chateau Mouton Rothschild (2018, $700), in addition to two other Classified Growth Chateaux. In Napa, they joined forces with Robert Mondavi to create Opus One (2017, $365). Their first ever project in Chile was a joint venture with Concha y Toro to create Almaviva (2017, $165).
Escudo Rojo represents the Rothschild’s 20 year commitment to create exceptional Chilean wines across multiple levels of enjoyment. Their Reserva range offers outstanding quality under the $20 price point, while their Origine showcases Chilean terroir in the form of world-class Cabernet. The flagship wine from this property is none other than the Baronesa P., a Bordeaux inspired red blend crafted from distinctively Chilean micro-climates. Made in very limited quantity, the 2018 is the inaugural vintage of this mesmerizing wine having earned a 97 Point badge from James Suckling.
