Winemaker 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.”

Critical Acclaim:

“93 points.

“This tightly knit wine has the buzzing energy of a beehive, the frisson of bubbles calming to a spicy scent of bee balm along with darker tones of whole-grain toast. It’s firmly structured, with lasting clarity to its flavors. Pour it with a selection of crudo, dressed in citrus and peppery olive oil.” – Wine & Spirits

“92 points.

“Rich and smoky, this creamy Champagne features firm acidity framing the flavors of almond financier, strawberry puree, coffee and crystalized honey. Offers a focused finish, with spice and citrus peel accents. Drink now through 2018. 1,500 cases imported.” – Wine Spectator
