Rare Collection Blanc de Blancs 2012
Barons de Rothschild Rare Collection Blanc de Blancs 2012 Magnum with Luxury Box is produced in very limited quantities and benefits from the same care as the Rothschild Family’s finest wines.
As soon as the Champagne House was created in 2005, the Rothschild family settled in Champagne with nothing but excellence as their ambition. Less than a year later, the creation of an exceptional cuvée placed under the sign of a great vintage, like the wines of their greatest Châteaux, completed its foundations.
Pale gold colour with crystalline hues.
The fresh, chalky minerality complements the fullness and richness of this sunny vintage. The notes of white flesh fruits, candied lemon, open up to aromas of roasting, dried fruits such as apricot and grilled almonds.
The ample, fresh and vertical attack reveals great complexity. Notes of citrus fruit and lemon zest support a long finish with toasted mocha and vanilla accents, and sign a perfect harmony between freshness and character.
This great Champagne wine will sublimate all moments of gastronomy and will pair the flavours of the most refined dishes. Its salty side will perfectly match a tartar of scampi with citrus fruits or a poached filet of turbot. Its spicy finish is a perfect pairing to lightly spiced poultry supremes or a veal medallion with morels.

Characteristics : The 2012 vintage : Sometimes icy and then scorching, the 2012 wine year was marked by a long winter, followed by a cool spring with little sunshine. After hail and torrential rain until the end of July, the heat of August miraculously saved the 2012 vintage. The harvest was small in quantity but of a rare and exceptional quality, making this one of the best vintages of its century.
