    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 cuvee 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 abundant, persistent foam.

    This rich, ethereal and complex cuvee embodies the essence of the Rothschild family's winemaking values: perfection, constancy, and a spirit of purity and refinement, all given the utmost of care.

    Blend: 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Well-knit, integrating a firm backbone of acidity and a fine, lightly creamy texture with flavors of patisserie apple, pastry, blanched almond and meringue. A smoky hint of minerality gains momentum on the finish.

    Light yellow-gold. Ripe pear and orange aromas are lifted by notes of chalk and ginger. Pliant and expansive, offering plush orchard fruit and melon flavors and a bracing touch of citrus zest. Closes with gentle grip and very good length, repeating the melon note.

    International Wine Cellar

    As if Champagne were meant for diplomacy, ready to accommodate the warm enthusiasm of the Baroness Philippine and the more austere humor of Baron Eric, this wine feels cushioned and gently inviting, gaining spice and backbone as it opens in the glass. It’s tightly knit, feeling severe and creamy at once, settling into an easy detente.
