Winemaker Notes

In this wine, Chardonnay is the signature of the refined, daring style of the de Rothschild Family's passion for this Champagne varietal and stands out in this cuvee, with its rare levels of purity and intensity. The first impression is clean and precise, followed by a silky freshness kept aloft by citrus and white fruit notes. The nose is dominated by citrus, which blends with the aromatic hints of fresh almonds and dried fruit.

The Blanc de Blancs displays a crystalline golden-yellow color that produces a fine foam and a continuous thread of delicate bubbles. The creamy sensation of its fine, chiseled bubbles is paired with a persistent, distinguished mineral softness.

This pure, delicate, complex cuvee embodies the essence of the de Rothschild Family's winemaking values: perfection, constancy, and a spirit of excellence and refinement, all given the utmost of care.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Champagne Barons de Rothschild, Champagne, France
Image of winery

The three branches of the Rothschild family have come together and given rise to a single ambition: produce a magnificent achievement as each has always done in their respective fields. To create Champagne Barons de Rothschild, the Rothschild family has put together the best terroirs and added their savoir-faire. Drawing from the experience in the sphere of wine, the Barons de Rothschild have once again created excellence. The advent of Champagne Barons de Rothschild, which adds an illustrious reference to the world of Champagne, could be nothing less than purely and simply great. The three branches of the Rothschild family have allied forces with Champagne families whose life’s work has been to create outstanding products.

Vision, spirit of enterprise and excellence are the signature of one name only: Rothschild. Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the dynasty was born in Germany in 1744. The dynasty has since given rise to seven generations of men and women of exception, acutely aware of the issues of their time. Driven by the passion to innovate the perform, they have consistently played a vital role in building European intellectual, scientific, cultural and financial assets.

Everything starts in the heart of the renowned Grands Blancs vineyards, a part of the Champagne region where Chardonnay has pride of place. The painstaking care lavished on each Barons de Rothschild Champagne reflects an exceptional commitment to quality that gives them such rarity value. The process is long and demanding. Great expertise produces wines that are in the image of the Rothschild name. Creativity has always been encouraged in the family. So each wine may be considered as a work of art, constructed day after day to achieve the ultimate balance that is the hallmark of great Champagne. Just like two centuries ago, each bottle rests in cellars hewn out of the rock where darkness and silence reign in respect for the fine champagne in the making.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
