HARVEST & AGEING
Made by blending; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from the Champagne region’s best terroirs, aged at least 3 years and over 40% from reserve wines, a mark of exceptional quality and consistency over time. This unique blend gives the wine its fine bubbles, golden color, and fine, subtle aromas of white fruit. It has a low dosage and is kept at least six months after the disgorgement process, for a pleasant, balanced mouthfeel that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or throughout the meal.
The Chardonnay of this champagne takes us into the world of Barons de Rothschild champagnes, marked by an unforgettable taste. A strong, assertive opening that leads into a well-rounded wine - powerful yet restrained; the sign of long aging in traditional cellars. This exceptionally fine cuvée exudes aromas of pear and nuts (almonds, fresh hazelnuts) marrying with hints of white flowers and faint toasty notes. The wine’s brilliance and clarity show pale golden highlights, combined with very fine bubbles that carry an abun- dant, persistent foam. This rich, ethereal and complex cuvée embodies the essence of the de Rothschild family’s winemaking values: perfection, constancy, and a spirit of purity and refinement, all given the utmost of care.
