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 HARVEST 2008

The Blanc de Blancs Barons de Rothschild Vintage 2008 is the result of a generous year that produced a harvest of remarkable quality. The cold weather made a particular impression on this year 2008 in Champagne, starting in October and all through December, with temperatures falling below -10°C. After a long winter, the spring brought mild weather as well as steady rains; then in June a radiant sun hinted at beautiful blossoms, followed by a hot and dry July. The beginning of August was accompanied by exceptionally cool and rainy days, followed by a providential sun which covered the entire Champagne region all through mid-September – the harvest period – favouring an ideal maturity worthy of the greatest vintages.

WINE AND FOOD PAIRING

This great wine of Champagne sublimes every moment of high gastronomy and highlights the most refined dishes for a sumptuous gustatory agreement. It will be a perfect accompaniment with a carpaccio of shellfish marinated with lemon caviar, a poached turbot fillet cooked in court bouillon with vegetables and truffles as well as a citrus langoustine tartare. To increase its freshness and its effervescence, it is stunning with a fowl supreme, risotto with foie gras or veal medaillon cooked with morels. For dessert, ice-cream flavoured with almonds, strawberry coulis and pistachio biscuits.
