Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Every Barons de Rothschild Champagne has exceptional characteristics that make each Champagne unique and great. The celebrated finesse in the Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs comes from the blend of the greatest Chardonnay grapes in Champagne after at least four years of cellars ageing. Inimitable brilliance, delicate bubbles, luminous golden glints, the very low dosage and long ageing after disgorging (6 to 9 months) enhance its innate quality. This Chardonnay develops its inherent authenticity and purity, for full appreciation for every occasion and at any time throughout the day.
The exclusively Chardonnay cuvée is crafted from the primary Côte des Blancs crus: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger. Reserve wines are used for a minimum of 40% of the blend. The exceptional expertise of the Barons de Rothschild house is a strong asset which enables composing a consistent blend year after year.
