Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose
43% Chardonnay, 57% Pinot Noir / Pinot Meunier | Alc: 12.5% Smooth + Dry
Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Champagne has a persistent mousse, with fine bubbles rising slowly. Pale salmon pink in color, with shades of gold and a nose of red fruits and fresh pear. Delicate fruit on the palate, elegant, and showing great finesse.
“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.” 92 Pts – Stephen Tanzer’s IWC
“Bright and elegant, this offers appealing flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry and orange peel that show hints of toasted raisin bread, anise and sweet smoke. Offers a beautiful texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2015.” 92 Pts – Wine Spectator
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. 92 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
“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.” 94 Pts – Australian Wine Companion
