60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir + Pinot Meunier | Alc: 12.5%
Champagne, France

Winemaker’s notes:
Champagne Barons de Rothschild NV Brut has pale gold glints mingling with very fine bubbles which produce abundant, persistent frothiness. This cuvée gives off aromas of pear, almonds and fresh hazelnuts which mingle with notes of white flowers and light accents of brioche. The palate has a straightforward, lively attack which gives way to roundness and contained power. Excellent aging potential in traditional cellars.

Champagne Barons de Rothschild is made up of the three French branches of the Rothschild family which individually own a number of wine brands and Bordeaux classed growth estates, including Mouton, Lafite and Clarke.

The Rothschild family’s signature is clearly expressed in this rich, complex and utterly aerial cuvée. 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.

Critical Acclaim:
“Lots of bread-dough and dried-apple character with lemon undertones. Roasted-nut and bread-dough undertones. Fine bubbles. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now.”  92 Pts – James Suckling

“A rosé of pinot noir from the Côte des Bars, this gains its color from a short maceration on the grape skins. The ripeness of the fruit comes through in exotic spices, like Szechuan peppercorns if they could buzz with coolness rather than heat. The red fruit flavor is tight and savory, without even a whisper of sweetness, lasting with gentle, quiet persistence.”  93 Pts – Wine & Spirits

“A well-cut Champagne, with a fine bead, this offers a mouthwatering range of nectarine, salted almond, honeysuckle and biscuit flavors. Elegant, featuring a lightly spiced finish.”  90 Pts – Wine Spectator
