Mission Codename Saignée Rare

The Rothschilds see Champagnes exactly like their other flagships. No expense spared. All to ensure one thing: the name on the bottle, and the shield of honor accompanying is never compromised. Since Napoleonic times, they have been the noblest banking family in Europe, and all their enterprises are built on principles of the family motto: Concordia, Integritas, Industria (Unity, Integrity, Commerce.) When they ‘banked’ on Champagne at the turn of this century, everyone knew they would get it right.

Antonio Galloni’s Vinous has the history: “Barons de Rothschild (note the plural) brings together the three branches of the family - Barons Philippe Sereys of Mouton, Eric of Lafite, and Benjamin and his wife, Ariane, of Clarke and the Edmond de Rothschild Group. The wines I tasted made it clear this is a serious and highly ambitious project… especially vinous Champagne that is also a perfect example of a trend… the more adventurous style often seen in the most progressive of the grower Domaines.”

Carpe diem!

96 Points – Fallstaff

“Subtle redcurrant and raspberry notes have a saline edge on the nose. The palate comes alive with that sense of tart berry and gentle white pepper spice while lemon freshness tingles with brightness. There is something playful about this: it is a wine with a knowing smile. It gives you berry notions but at its core it is brisk, saline, taut, fresh, citric. This is all sleekness and poise - precision is its middle name. Lovely.”
