    Wine Spectator: "Hints of toasted brioche and lemon curd are layered with glazed apricot and spice notes in this firm, well-knit Champagne. Lively, offering a clean-cut, minerally finish."

    Winery: "The Barons de Rothschild Brut is aerial Champagne that is rich and complex. The blend uses three to four-year old Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs from the best land in Champagne. This subtle blend produces a wine with fabulously fine bubbles, elegant golden colour and fine, delicate nuances of white fruit. Low dosage and at least six months’ time after disgorging gives this Champagne beautifully balanced structure on the palate that is highly appreciated when served as the aperitif or throughout the meal.

    Eyes: Pale gold glints mingling with very fine bubbles which produce abundant, persistent frothiness. Nose: This cuvée gives off aromas of pear, almonds and fresh hazelnuts which mingle with notes of white flowers and light accents of brioche. Palate: Straightforward, lively attack which gives way to roundness and contained power. Excellent ageing potential in traditional cellars."
