Baron Philippe de Rothschild Viognier is a white wine made in the from grapes grown in the Pays d’Oc. Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s winemakers have selected the areas in the heart of Languedoc Roussillon with the best soil and climate for growing the Viognier grape. In the region around Limoux in particular, offering a patchwork of micro-terroirs, they have chosen the highest quality parcels from their growers’ vineyards.
Viognier prefers areas with a temperate climate and poor soil. Baron Philippe de Rothschild have selected the Oceanic, Autan and upper valley terroirs: their soil – sandstone, gravel and red clay – and their cool climate favour the development of Viognier’s unique and complex fruit and blossom aromas. The wines from each parcel are vinified separately before final blending. Baron Philippe de Rothschild Viognier is matured on fine lees in vats for six months then quickly bottled at BPDR’s Saint-Laurent-Médoc winery in order to preserve all their freshness and fruit.
