On the 23rd of November, we were gathered at the lovely Maison Francaise to witness the launch of Champagne Barons de Rothschild in Malaysia, and Natseas Corporation Sdn Bhd is the official importer of the said champagne here in town.
Champagne Barons de Rothschild is housed in Vertus, a grand cru village within the Cote des Blancs, south of Eperney. As the name (Cote des Blancs) suggests, this is where the most sought after Chardonnays of the region are found. Interestingly enough, the pronunciation of Rothschild varies, in English apparently it's Roths CHILD, whereas in French it's Roths CHILLED.
Either way, it is a bubbly of fine distinction, and uses a signficant of Chardonnay in its blends. This grape variety, which accounts for just 28% of the total vineyards in Champagne, is not only the rarest and most sought-after, it is above all a guarantee of a supremely delicate wine.

The history of the well-known Rothschild family dates back to more than 250 years. Champagne Barons de Rothschild is made up of the three French branches of the family which individually own a number of wine brands and Bordeaux classed growth estates, including Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Clarke.

My good chum, CCFoodTravel with the bottle of lovely Barons de Rothschild Champagne Rosé asserts gorgeous finesse. The Champagne Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay grapes from Champagne and the Pinots Noirs with a minimum of three years cellar-ageing.
And finally the Brut..
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. - Source : https://www.champagne-bdr.com/en/brut/
