Tasting notes

The full beauty of this millésime is expressed in its gleaming, silky robe, a legacy of the Chardonnay that reveals a freshness and generosity seldom seen. Boasting an inimitable sparkle and a persistent cordon of delicate bubbles accompanied by crystalline gold tints, it reveals exotic fruit aromas, crowned with a pinch of white peach, and followed by grilled notes and hints of brioche. The palate enjoys a precise, distinct attack, with a distinguished mineral softness leading to a slightly lemony and zestful finale. The minerality, the chalk and a slight pinch of ash transport us to the lands of these great wines. The overall harmony of this Vintage 2008 is perfectly well-balanced, it is a gourmet wine, a champagne to be shared.

CHAMPAGNE BARONS DE ROTHSCHILD

Vinification and aging

A perfect combination that gives this vintage all of its subtlety, thanks to over eight years of ageing in the cellars. This process allows it to achieve a perfect harmony. This wine is dosed with a small amount of liquor 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.

Terroir

The Blanc de Blancs Barons de Rothschild Vintage 2008 affirms its finesse thanks to its blend of the finest Chardonnays of Grand Crus villages from the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, etc.
