The Barons de Rothschild from Château Lafite, Château Mouton and Château Clarke have joined forces to form the latest Champagne house. With the ushering in of the New Millennium the Rothschild’s decided to create the symbol of their work and spirit values through the most prestigious wine area in the world, Champagne. In 2005 the three branches of the Rothschild family along with several of the most passionate families of champagne united to establish this new house of excellence within Champagne, based in Reims itself. Long term contracts with selected vignerons in the finest Grand and Premier Cru areas, particularly in the Côte des Blancs were agreed upon and this year we see the culmination of viticultural excellence and deft vinification as the very first release of what will most definitely be among the most sought after Champagne in production arrives on our shores. Three wines of the utmost quality made in the traditional manner make up the entirety of the Rothschild’s Champagne production all of which have Chardonnay as the major contributing varietal. The house style is that of elegance, lightness and refinement.
