Barons de Rothschild Extra Brut is a rich and aerial wine. The blend uses three to four-year-old Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs from the best land in Champagne. This Champagne, dosed at only 3 grams and kept 9 to 12 months after disgorging, offers a beautifully balanced structure on the palate that is highly appreciated when served as the aperitif or throughout the meal.
This cuvée is crafted from 60% Chardonnay primarily from la Côte des Blancs Grands crus and Premiers crus and 40% Pinot Noir primarily from Verzenay, Ay, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Ambonnay... Reserve wines are used for up to 40% of the blend, an exceptional sign of quality and regularity over time.
Tasting Eyes: Exceptionally limpid golden yellow robe streaked with fine strands of bubbles, abundant persistent frothiness. Nose: Crystalline and mineral, this cuvée gives up aromas of yellow fruit delicately mingling with light toasted and brioche notes. Palate: Lively attack, very pure, underlying silkiness and refreshing sensations. Wine and food pairing Barons de Rothschild Extra-Brut Champagne is complex and for every moment. Ideal as an aperitif as well as during a meal. It pairs with oysters, a lobster carpaccio, lightly seared scallops, or sushis. Then savour the Cuvée with a medaillon of veal accompanied by white truffles and fresh pasta. Finally, the cuvée will well go with an ageless parmesan and some lemon appetizers as dessert.
