Champagne Barons de Rothschild | Reims
Champagne Barons de Rothschild came to fruition in 2007; however, it can be seen as over two centuries in the making. Driven by a passion for business and the understanding that in unity there is strength, three branches of the Rothschild family came together and united the arrows on their family coat of arms to create Barons de Rothschild Champagne.
Everything began 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.
Of the 312 villages or growths that come within the Champagne appellation, only 17 are ranked as Grands Crus and 44 as Premiers Crus. These exceptional soils, the most highly sought-after in the growing area, are where the Rothschild family has established solid relations for the supply of the very best grapes.
Just as in their famous Bordeaux wines, where the proximity of skilled wine experts and the best terroirs have been central to family values for over 160 years, the Rothschilds have succeeded once again in expressing their family values of excellence, taste and conviviality, but this time with sparkle and savour, in their rare and outstanding range of Grand Crus and Premier Crus Champagnes.
The exclusive approach governing the style of Barons de Rothschild Champagne is evident in the significant presence of Chardonnay used in its blends. This grape variety, which accounts for just 28% of the total vineyards in Champagne, is not only the rarest and most sought-after, it is above all a guarantee of a supremely delicate wine. The Champagne Barons de Rothschild cuvées assert themselves by their blending of the best Chardonnay of Champagne after at least four years of maturing in their cellars. They benefit of the usual treatment normally reserved to the cuvées of the best Champagne Houses.
