Opus One is the realised dream of two men: Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. Together, they set out to create a single wine that harnessed the unrivalled winemaking of Bordeaux, whilst reaping the benefits of Napa Valley’s outstanding terroir.
Opus One has intense aromas of black plum, blueberry, blackcurrant, and dried rose petals, punctuated by undertones of minerality. The creamy, satin texture is framed by ﬁne-grained tannins. Its freshness and soft acidity creates a subtle tension between the dark fruit ﬂavours, savoury herbs, espresso, and cocoa. A delicate dark chocolate bitterness lingers after each sip.
