    Winemaker's Notes:

    Persistent mousse, with fine bubbles rising slowly. Pale salmon pink in color, with a shade of gold. A nose of red fruits and fresh pear. Delicate fruit on the palate, elegant, and showing great finesse.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This could be my desert island wine, every time I have tasted the non-vintage Billecart-Salmon Rose, my palate tingles with unabashed excitement. This bubbly is so elegant and refined; bursts with aromas and flavors of wild strawberries; gentle yet crisp on the palate; active in the finish. Perfect with fresh salmon sashimi.

    The currently available Brut Rose is based on the '09 vintage, with significant contributions from '08 and '07; 43% is chardonnay, 57% pinot noir and pinot meunier, with a light dosage of 7-8 g/l. It has a perfumed, red-fruits bouquet and a palate full of richness and flavour, balanced by notes of chalk and mineral ex the acidity. I cannot remember ever having a glass of Billecart rose that disappointed me.

    Finely meshed and elegant, with mouthwatering acidity and a satiny texture carrying the delicate flavors of ripe raspberry, lemon shrtbread, chalk and fresh ginger. Offers a clean, minerally finish. Drink now through 2020.

    A dry rosé, freshly tasting of red currant fruits, laced with beautifully refreshing acidity. The wine has some weight, but it has more of an elegant, dancing lightness.

    Light orange. Tangerine, pear and flowers on the nose, which is complicated by a note of fennel. Broad and sappy but dry, with lively orange and strawberry flavors and a subtle note of spice cake. Weightier on the finish, which features an exotic note of spicy herbs. This Champagne’s delicate touch will make it work well with simple seafood dishes or even sashimi.
