The Barons de Rothschild from Chateau Lafite, Chateau Mouton and Chateau 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. Their efforts have finally come to fruition.
A rich, ethereal and complex cuvee that embodies the essence of the Rothschild family’s winemaking values. Chardonnay is the major contributing varietal. The house style is that of elegance, lightness and refinement.

"Light, bright gold, with a hint of green. Ripe pear and orange on the nose, with notes of nougat and yellow plum adding complexity. Smooth and fleshy in the mouth, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. The spicy finish features solid punch and good focus."
Wine Spectator (WS): 92
"Well-knit, integrating a firm backbone of acidity and a fine, lightly creamy texture with flavors of patisserie apple, pastry, blanched almond and meringue. A smoky hint of minerality gains momentum on the finish."
Wine & Spirit (W&S): 90
"As if Champagne were meant for diplomacy, ready to accommodate the warm enthusiasm of the Baroness Philippine and the more austere humor of Baron Eric, this wine feels cushioned and gently inviting, gaining spice and backbone as it opens in the glass. It’s tightly knit, feeling severe and creamy at once, settling into an easy detente."
