Les Lauriers de Rothschild Montagne Saint Emilion
Les Lauriers des Rothschild, hailing from St. Emilion, France, is aged in French oak for 12 months. With a vibrant purple color, the wine offers an earthy, fruity aroma reminiscent of freshly picked cherries and raspberries. It features a light-bodied, medium-acid taste with a focus on red fruit flavors and subtle cedar notes. The smooth tannins contribute to a lingering finish, making it an enjoyable and well-balanced wine.
The passion for wine deeply ingrained in the French branch of the Rothschild family traces back to 1868 when James de Rothschild acquired Chateau Lafite. This rich family history in the world of wine continued with Baron Edmond de Rothschild, who expanded the legacy in 1973 by acquiring Chateau Clarke and Chateau Malmaison, two Cru Bourgeois wines in Listrac and Moulis-en-Medoc. This marked the foundation of the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
Under Baron Edmond’s leadership, the company meticulously restored properties, replanted vines, and modernized estates, all while preserving a familial atmosphere. Today, Baron Benjamin de Rothschild leads the Compagnie Vinicole, steering it towards global recognition. Strategic partnerships with like-minded families who share the entrepreneurial spirit and love for wine have been formed. Notable ventures include Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons in South Africa, Flechas de los Andes in Argentina, Chateau des Laurets in Bordeaux, Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia producing Macan wines in Spain’s Rioja Alta, and Rimapere wines in New Zealand after acquiring vineyards in Marlborough Valley in 2012.
Benjamin de Rothschild and his wife, Ariane, work across continents, upholding high standards in crafting quality wines rooted in authenticity and environmental respect. The family’s commitment extends to initiatives preserving and promoting winemaking heritage, including the Cite du Vin in Bordeaux. Serving as Builder Patrons, the family actively supports this cultural destination, blending museum and theme park elements to educate visitors about wine history and heritage.
