Every Barons de Rothschild Champagne has exceptional characteristics that make each unique and great.
The Barons de Rothschild Brut is aerial Champagne that is rich and complex. The blend uses three to four-year old Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs from the best land in Champagne.
This subtle blend produces a wine with fabulously fine bubbles, elegant golden colour and fine, delicate nuances of white fruit. Low dosage and at least six months’ time after disgorging gives this Champagne beautifully balanced structure on the palate that is highly appreciated when served as the aperitif or throughout the meal.
The Rothschild family’s signature is clearly expressed in this rich, complex and utterly aerial cuvee. The family’s commitment to perfection, to constancy, and the spirit of purity and refinement which dictate consistent, sustained attention stands behind their Brut Champagne. The finesse of the Chardonnay in this Champagne brings you straight into the world of the unforgettable taste of Barons de Rothschild Champagnes.
This cuvee is a complex blend of 60% Chardonnay primarily from the Cote des Blancs Grands crus and Premiers crus; and 40% Pinot Noir primarily from Verzenay, Ay, Mareuil-surAy, and Ambonnay’ Reserve wines are used for up to 40% of the blend, an exceptional sign of quality and regularity over time.
