Extra Brut Non Vintage
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.
Blend of 60% chardonnay and 40% pinot noir from the Champagne region’s best terroirs, aged at least 3 years sur latte. 40% of reserve wines have been added to the Cuvée. While most Champagnes are typically made with 20 to 25 percent of Grand Cru village, Barons de Rothschild Brut is made with 82 percent of the fruit coming from Grand Cru villages. Low dosage (6g/l) and kept at least 6 months after the disgorgement process.
Aroma of lemons, yellow plums, apricots, grapefruits, toasted brioche. In the mouth it is lemony fresh and dry with well integrated acidity, hints of stone fruits and toasted notes at the finish. Great aperitif or pair it with scallops, tuna tartar, white fish ceviche, fish or seafood sashimi, fruit desserts.
