Description & Technical Information
-
In 2003, the most famous name in wine turned their attention to the sparkling variety, founding Champagne Barons de Rothschild. The three Rothschild cousins Baron Benjamin, Baron Eric and Baroness Philippine came together with a single ambition: to combine the best terroirs with their know-how and finally add champagne to Rothschild’s huge portfolio of wines. Experiencing incredible early growth, the House managed to secure contracts to an impressive 72 hectares of vineyard, with 50% located in Grand Cru rated Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Premier Cru rated Vertus. With their winery, Chateau Rothschild, and the majority of their vineyards located in the Côte des Blancs, the house-style is Chardonnay focused.

Champagne Barons de Rothschild Brut NV uses three to four-year old Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from only Grand and Premier Cru vineyards. The blend is an assemblage of 60% Chardonnay primarily from Grand Crus in the Côte des Blancs and 40% Pinot Noir mainly from the Montagne de Reims. Aged for at least three years, Barons de Rothschild Brut NV has a high 40% reserve wine content.

Tasting Note: Pale gold with a fine stream of bubbles, on the nose initial aromas of pear and nuttiness give way to hints of brioche. On the palate: a linear and lively flavour of orchard fruits and hazelnuts, on the mid-palate: the texture is creamy and has an elegant freshness. The finish is long with light flavours of white flowers and toasty characteristics. Pairing with light dishes, scallops and shellfish will bring out the best of this champagne.

Josh Raynolds
“(60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir; 7 g/l dosage; LS40D84L1): Light yellow-gold. Ripe pear and nectarine scents are sharpened and lifted by hints of citrus zest and smoky minerals. On the palate, fresh orchard and citrus fruit flavors deepen and spread out with air while picking up a smoky, leesy quality. Finishes supple and long, with repeating pear and lees notes. Forty percent of this blend is reserve wines, by the way.”

“60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir. This is also the blend currently sold as the NV Ritz champagne. Based on 2009. Currently 7g/l.
Clean, fresh, pointed and brisk. Far from opulent. ”

“Bright fruity, clean, rather neutral nose of apple and cream. Sweet fruit and mild seductive autolysis nuances. Promising nose, however less fruity on the palate. Still, good fruit quality and purity. Light and elegant with brisk acidity and a fine lemony finish.”
