The Art of Tasting
Appearance: pale golden highlights, combined with very fine bubbles that carry an abundant, persistent foam.
Aroma: This exceptionally fine cuvée exudes aromas of pear and nuts (almonds, fresh hazelnuts) that marry with hints of white flowers and faint toasty notes.
Palate: A strong, assertive opening that leads into a well-rounded wine that is powerful yet contained; the sign of long ageing in traditional cellars.
Wine and Food pairings
Barons de Rothschild Brut Champagne is a complex wine for all moments, ideal as an aperitif or with a Champagne meal. It pairs with light dishes, lightly seared scallops, shellfish and rockfish. Then savour the Cuvée with a risotto, a chicken dish or another white meat. End your meal with cheese, a farmfresh Brie de Meaux or Chaource.
