Winemaker 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

WW 96
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

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.

An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now.

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.
