Celebration of Life

Baronness Phillipine De Rothschild

Our last salute to the Baroness.

Madam Philippine de Rothschild died in Paris on August 23/2014, at age 80. Known by all as simply “the Baroness”, she cracked the male dominated wine industry to become the chairwoman and majority shareholder of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, the leading exporter of Bordeaux wines and the grandest of Bordeaux Chateaus.

Chateau d'Yquem

Superior First Growth

Chateau d’Yquem is a “Superior First Growth” winery in southern Bordeaux. These wines have two distinct characteristics. One, the flavours in the wine are complex, concentrated, and sweet. The high acidity in the wine is balanced out by the sweetness. Second, Chateau d’Yquem wines are known for their longevity. Majority of the wines, with proper care, can be kept for approximately a century.
