Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2010 (6 bottle presentation case)
Beautiful pale gold hue with crystalline reflections. The first nose is very mineral and chalky with notes of citrus fruit, fresh almonds and hazelnuts. The second nose then reveals notes of spices, tonka beans and nutmeg, underpinned by a lovely freshness. After several minutes, aromas of stone fruit, mocha and praline with pastry overtones start to come through. The wine is broad on entry with a verticality on the palate that mirrors the minerality detected on the nose. The very fine saline and iodine notes, accompanied by touches of lemon and citrus fruit, give way to spicy notes that underpin the long, warm finish and reveal the perfect harmony that emanates from this wine.
Presented in a beautiful bespoke briefcase.
