Blanc de Blancs Brut 2008
The Rothschild family has been involved in the Champagne industry for a while. It all started post WW2 when Philippe de Rothschild got solicited by the Ruinart Family to help them financially save their Champagne House, resulting in a 40% share deal to be signed in favor of The Baron. The first Baron Philippe de Rothschild labels were produced and kept within the Rothschild Family. Then in 1963 Ruinart got sold to Moët & Chandon. Philippe de Rothschild remained for a little period at the board before resigning and moving the investment to Chateau Clerc Millon in Pauillac. In 2003, the Rothschild Family decided to join the arrows of their coat of arms to launch the House of Champagne Barons de Rothschild.
100% chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs signature crus of Avize, Cramant, Mesnil sur Oger and Vertus. Aged 7 years on lees. Low dosage (5g/l) and kept at least 12 months after the disgorgement process.
Notes of pastry dough, lemon curd and baked apricot show in this creamy blanc de blancs, while lively acidity focuses this through to the smoke- and spice-laced finish.
