Bordeaux Lovers take heed! From the Superb 2015 Vintage I have acquired a mere 5 Cases of this fantastic wine from the Moulis en Medoc, Chateau Malmaison. Owned by the Rothschild Family (from the Lafite side) this is one you should not miss. It has all the class and pedigree of wines costing many times more. Grab a case before it disappears and that will happen quickly.

Chateau Malmaison, in the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation, is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc. Grapes have been grown here, thanks to a handful of different owners and a sizeable religious community, since the Middle Ages. This property, which adjoins Chateau Clarke, was purchased by Baron de Rothschild in 1978. Thanks to his impetus, the vineyard was restored to its former glory. He named the wine after his spouse, the elegant Baroness Nadine de Rothschild, who is also passionate about gardening. The vineyard now covers 33 hectares of clay limestone soil, which is ideal for Merlot, the predominant grape variety. Chateau Malmaison possesses delicacy, suppleness and elegance with a rich and fruity bouquet.

The passion for wine that runs in the French branch of the Rothschild family was born in 1868 when James de Rothschild purchased Château Lafite. After more than a century of family history tied to the world of wine, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, great-grandson of James, took the adventure further in 1973 by acquiring two Cru Bourgeois wines in Listrac and Moulis-en-Médoc: Château Clarke and Château Malmaison. Chateau Malmaison is a unique wine for the region in that it is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc rather than the Cabernet Sauvignon found in most of the region. The color is a beautiful garnet and the aromatics highly perfumed with a nice spiciness from the Cab Franc. It fills the mouth with ripe juicy plum and currant fruit that is both fleshy and voluptuous. The finish is complex and long with hints of cedar and ripe blackberries. It displays the excellence of the 2015 Vintage in spades!
