Marks and reviews
Founded in 2005, the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House has established strong relationships with partner producers to craft champagnes of a rare elegance from exceptional terroirs and rigorously selected grapes. "Accomplishing through great achievements", such has been the Rothschild family’s ambition for more than 250 years. Through the strength of its wine-growing experience, the family has joined forces with producers from Champagne to develop excellent champagnes which bring together know-how and tradition.
With the values of excellence, good taste and conviviality, the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House, which head office has been located in Reims since 2007, near illustrous estates in the Champagne wine region, unveils cuvées which unique style harmoniously combines finesse, balance and purity.
The champagnes of the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House are made of grapes derived from exceptional terroirs in Champagne, notably the grands crus and the premiers crus of Côte des Blancs.
The blend of this Blanc de Blancs of the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House is 100% Chardonnay. The grapes are derived form the main crus of Côte des Blancs (Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Vertus). The reserve wines, which supplement up to 40% of the blend, indicate a high quality and great ageing potential.
This low-dose Blanc de Blancs of the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House benefits from 3 years of ageing in cellars, followed by a further 6 to 9 months of ageing after disgorging, thus developing the pureness of this cuvée and its delicate expression of chardonnay.
The wine is a beautiful, crystal-clear, golden yellow colour. Effervescence is fine and delicate.
Intense and wonderfully pure, the nose mixes fragrances of citrus, fresh almonds and dried fruits.
Greatly precise, the palate seduces with its silky freshness, its aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruits. During the tasting, the fineness of the effervescence imparts a delicious, creamy sensation, harmoniously blended with a lingering and very smooth minerality.
Food and wine pairings
Ideal as an aperitif with seafood, this Blanc de Blancs from the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House is ideally served with a lobster soufflé, carpaccio or lightly lemony lobsters from Saint Jacques, grilled sea bass with dill or even lemon pie.
