Blending 2018 Barons de Rothschild

April 2018

During the last few weeks our cellar master worked on an important step: the blend.
The blend is created with a set of still wines from the best crus of the Côte des Blancs, the Montagne de Reims, and from reserve wines (minimum 40%) of the best last years for non-vintage cuvee.
Most of our still wines come from chardonnay, a rare grape variety in Champagne representing typicity of Champagne Barons de Rothschild which is the guarantee of a supremely delicate wine. Our chardonnay comes from the best crus of la Côte des Blancs, Le Mesnil, Avize, Cramant, Oger, Vertus …
The know-how of the cellar master is to develop his sensorial memory and to imagine the evolution of the wine. The chardonnay provides delicate fragrant wines with characteristic notes of flowers, citrus and minerality. The champagne will obtain a balance that the nature is not able to give without human intervention.
The art of blending makes the best complementarity of the wines, in order to have the harmony which is the signature of each cuvées Champagne Barons de Rothschild.
