Apart from producing one of the world's greatest dry red wines, few people know that Mouton Rothschild also make small quantities of fine spirits and liqueurs. In fact, when Baronne Philippine de Rothschild receives guests, it's customary for her to offer one of their Eaux de Vie, made from the vineyards and orchards at Mouton Rothschild.

Each vintage a few barrels of young wine are set aside to make Marc d'Aquitaine. Aged for 15-30 years, it's composed of spirits from different years with an average age of about twenty years. Presented in a solid oak box, etched with the Chateau Mouton crest, this is a genuine limited edition, at least for the general public.

Tasting notes Rothschild's are extraordinary Eau de vies. This bottling builds with giddy aromas and flavours of dried prunes, raisins, figs and fruit cake with a fresh, vibrant, spicy kick. Super pure and succulent, it's delicious definition, power, striking balance and length make for a benchmark for others to follow. If you are looking for profound Eau de Vie, this is it. 41.5% Alc./Vol. 874 bottles produced.
