Details

The Champagne Barons de Rothschild NV Blanc de Blancs presents a crystal-clear appearance in the glass, adorned with a fine bead of delicate bubbles, captivating the eye with its elegance. On the nose, this Blanc de Blancs immediately offers an intense experience, initially unveiling an exotic character followed by vibrant notes of citrus and dried fruits. As the wine evolves, it reveals a second layer of aromas reminiscent of brioche and buttery pastry, interwoven with hints of roasted almonds, inviting anticipation for what lies ahead. On the palate, the wine entrances with its clean and lemony entry, displaying remarkable length and verticality. With each sip, the wine unfolds further, showcasing notes of roasting and spices before culminating in a warm, slightly saline finish that lingers pleasantly on the palate. The finesse of Chardonnay, combined with the aromatic richness of the Grands Terroirs of the Côte des Blancs, results in a Blanc de Blancs that exudes perfect harmony, a testament to the savoir-faire of Barons de Rothschild.


Robert Parker - 92 Points

"With a dosage of six grams per liter, the NV Blanc de Blancs from Barons de Rothschild offers up a delicate, citrusy bouquet with aromas of spices, lemon oil, herbs, pastry and spring flowers. Medium-bodied, enveloping and round, it has a charming, perfumed core of fruit with an ethereal, saline and penetrating finish."


Antonio Galloni - 92 Points

"Pale yellow.  Orange zest, lemongrass, jasmine and chalky minerals on the perfumed nose, with a hint of white pepper adding lift.   Juicy, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit flavors are fleshed out by suggestions of melon and honey, putting on weight with air while maintaining vivacity.  Spicy and focused on the very long, mineral-driven finish, which leaves chalky mineral and floral notes behind. "
