Rare Collection Rosé 2012
Barons de Rothschild Rare Collection Rosé 2012 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.
A brilliant colour with copper highlights and a fine effervescence.
The finesse of the Chardonnay is combined with the structure and power of the Pinot Noir. Toasted notes of spices and vanilla evoke the partial vinification in barrels. On opening, the aromas of pear and the freshness of the Chardonnay are expressed.
The ample attack, all in lightness and lemony notes, brings tension and crispness, revealing a wine with a beautiful verticality. The persistence on the finish is supported by great complexity and beautiful bitters.
This great Champagne wine will go perfectly with a pink duck breast or a doe with a grand veneur sauce. Its structure will also sublimate slightly spicy dishes of Asian or Oriental cuisine.

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.
