Billecart-Salmon : Brut Rose
Marks and reviews
A precise, elegant and fresh Rose Champagne by Billecart-Salmon
Since its creation in 1818 by husband and wife, Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-Francois Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, having preserved all of its know-how and demand for high-quality cuvees for 7 generations.
The Billecart-Salmon vineyard covers 100 hectares from the Cote des Blancs to the Reims mountain. The vines are cultivated and cared for in a traditional manner so that the wine resembles real fruit and to reflect the quality of its Champagne terroir.
Winemaking and aging
Vinification in tanks. Malolactic fermentation. 40% reserve wines. Aging on lees for 36 months. 9g/liter dosage.
Bright, with subtle golden tints and a persistent effervescence.
Fine, subtle and delicious, the nose breathes in fragrances of red fruits and citrus zest.
An attack which unites precision and elegance precedes an extremely fresh palate and finish, with delicious hints of raspberry.
Serve at 8°C for an optimal tasting.
Food and wine pairings
Ideal as an aperitif, this Brut Rose by the Billecart-Salmon House goes perfectly with a wild salmon dish, sushis or even red fruits at dessert.
