Barons de Rothschild
The Maison, founded in 2005, interprets the love for quality and the art of a united and committed family for more than two centuries. Made with the best Crus in the region, Barons de Rothschild champagnes are recognized for their constant pursuit of excellence.
Founded in 2005, Champagne Barons de Rothschild was born from a unique and unprecedented alliance between the three branches of the Rothschild family - now represented by Baron Philippe Sereys de Rothschild (Château Mouton Rothschild), Baron Benjamin and his wife Ariane (Château Clarke - Edmond de Rothschild Group), by Baron Eric and his daughter Saskia (Château Lafite Rothschild).
Passionate about the greatest terroirs of France and the world, the 3 families joined forces, for the first time in their history, to create a Maison of Champagne and realize together their unique interpretation of a "Grand Vin de Champagne''.
Respecting the highest standards of all fine wines, the processing of each Barons de Rothschild champagne is a masterpiece of craftsmanship founded on 5 pillars:
- CHARDONNAY: is the hallmark of the House and represents over 70% of the total supply of grapes. It makes up no less than 50-60% of all our champagne blends.
- GRAND E PREMIER CRUS: 90% of the Maison’s grapes come from a total of 85 hectares of vineyards. The family has built its vineyards among the exceptional terroirs of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims and works closely with the winemakers to ensure quality and traceability in respect of the environment.
- RESERVE WINES: over 40% of the blend of our non vintage champagnes is composed of reserve wines, a rarity in Champagne, which give balance and harmony. Most of these wines are kept in a perpetual reserve created from the first harvest of 2005.
- PURITY OF DOSAGE: with a maximum between 1.5 and 6 g/l, our range of wines is among the least "dosed" of Champagne, allowing the origin of the wine and the typical character of the terroir to emerge without obstacles.
- TIME: a guarantee of quality and excellence with an exceptionally long aging period in bottle, from about 4 years for the Brut to over 10 years for vintage champagnes. After disgorgement, the champagne rests for at least another 6 months and sometimes for over a year to achieve perfect balance.
