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
