In the respect of the house style, this millésime symbolizes the elegance of an exceptional year for Chardonnay.
A perfect combination that gives this vintage all of its subtlety, thanks to over eight years of ageing in the cellars.
BLANC DE BLANCS – 2008 VINTAGE
Continuing its strive for excellence, the House Barons de Rothschild announces its second millésime: the Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2008 which brilliantly embodies the elegance and delicacy of Chardonnay increased by the richness and the complexity of this exceptional year.
Faithfully respecting the characteristic of the House, the dosage of the Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2008 is extremely light; the liqueur, skilfully prepared by the Cellar Master, and the long period of ageing after disgorging (more than 12 months) enable the full expression of the Chardonnay and the exceptional harmony of this Cuvée. Matured on lees for 7 years, the blend is based on Chardonnay grapes taken from the best Grand Crus vineyards of the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger…
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.
