Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs 2006 Vintage

Hallmark of the savoir-faire of the House, this exceptional millésime symbolizes rarity and absolute elegance.

Our first cuvée Vintage is issued from the great year of 2006. Matured on lees for 7 years, the blend is based on Chardonnay grapes taken from the top vineyards of the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger.

This wine is dosed with a small amount of liqueur skilfully prepared by the Cellar Master and is aged for a long period after disgorging (a minimum of 12 months) to produce its characteristic maturity and richness and enable the full expression of the Chardonnay, a grape variety emblematic of the House’s refined and bold style.

A perfect balance where notes of citrus and white peach are expressed, to achieve an abundance of purity and an absolute harmony, the hallmark of an exceptional Champagne.

The Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2006 expresses its full beauty in its gleaming, silky robe, a legacy of the Chardonnay that reveals freshness and generosity. Boasting an inimitable sparkle and a persistent cordon of delicate bubbles accompanied by crystalline gold tints, it reveals pear and dried fruit aromas in the nose.

The attack in the mouth is precise and clear, with a distinguished mineral smoothness and citrus and white peach notes. The fruit is in evidence throughout and signs off a final where fresh almond notes blend with light brioche accents.

This great wine of Champagne sublimes every moment of high gastronomy and highlights the most refined dishes for a sumptuous gustatory agreement. It will be a perfect accompaniment with a carpaccio of shellfish marinated with lemon caviar, a poached turbot fillet cooked in court bouillon with vegetables and truffles as well as a citrus langoustine tartare.
