Barons De Rothschild Champagne Blanc De Blancs
Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: The Blanc de Blancs displays a crystalline golden-yellow colour that produces a fine foam and a continuous thread of delicate bubbles. The Chardonnay stands out in this cuvee, which offers rare levels of purity and intensity. The nose is dominated by citrus, which blends with the aromatic hints of fresh almonds and dried fruit. The first impression is clean and precise, followed by a silky freshness kept aloft by citrus and white fruit notes. The creamy sensation of its fine, chiselled bubbles is paired with a persistent, distinguished mineral softness.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Pairing: This great champagne is appropriate before dinner at any time of year, but it pairs especially well with seafood platters in the summer. The Blanc de Blancs is the perfect accompaniment for a lobster souffle, a carpaccio of scallops or shellfish with light citrus dressing. Enjoy the cuvee with your main course, pairing it with grilled sea bass dressed with dill, then with a lemon tart for dessert.
