Escudo Rojo Gran Reserva 2018, three bottle case

£56.85 £39.95

In the late 1990’s Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA true to the pioneering spirit of its founder, decided to explore the viticultural paradise that is Chile. The daughter of the great Baron Philippe, Baroness Philippine, was keen to implement her exacting standards to produce a range of high quality wines expressing the diversity of Chile’s valleys. The Escudo Gran Reserva is created using fruit nurtured in the Maipo Valley and brings together the richness of the New world with the refinement of the old world. Escudo 2018 is the first vintage released under the Gran Reserva label and represents an improved quality. The wine has enjoyed a recent score of 93/100 by the renowned critic James Suckling

Tasting notes

Escudo Gran Reserva 2018 initially boasts a beautifully complex and rich nose with juicy black fruit. After a few minutes in the glass, the Carmenere comes through with a hint of smoke and black pepper. The perfectly balanced oak provides a toasty note of vanilla and coffee bean which wraps around a core of cassis and black cherry. The palate has great concentration and balance whilst delivering enough power to deem this wine full bodied, without being clumsy. After an hour in the decanter this wine is really impressive. Its quality will ensure it develops beautifully in the cellar for a decade to come. Enjoy with a grilled steak!
