Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs
Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs has delicate bubbles accompanied by crystalline gold tints, it reveals exotic fruit aromas, crowned with a pinch of white peach and followed by grilled notes and hints of brioche. The palate enjoys a precise, distinct attack, with a distinguished mineral softness, leading to a slightly lemony and zestful finale. The minerality, the chalk and a slight pinch of ash transport us to the lands of these great wines.
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 Champagne of the 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 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.
