Notes from the Winemaker:

The production secrets and the vinification method of this cuvée go back to the origins of the House of BILLECART-SALMON and have been handed down for seven generations. The Brut Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine.

Appearance: Its pale and bright pink colour is adorned with warm glints of gold and its delicate slowly rising bubbles give it a persistent mousse.

Aroma: This cuvée unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits.

Palate: Its special method of vinification gives this cuvée a light, elegant flavour, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.

Serving: This rosé champagne is an ideal partner as an aperitif and can also accompany a dish of wild salmon or sushi. For dessert, it will add a sublime touch to red fruit flavours.



Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - James Suckling:
"A gorgeous rosé Champagne with sliced strawberries, orange peel and hints of cream and pie crust. Medium body, tight and integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tangy acidity. The texture shows a fine bead and lightness. Long and intense. Drink now." (May 13, 2018)
93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A lovely rosé in an almost vinous style, with mouthwatering acidity and a fine, lacy mousse carrying appealing flavors of ripe raspberry, white cherry fruit, star anise, mandarin orange peel and honeysuckle. Lightly chalky on the lasting finish. Enjoy with food. Drink now through 2020." – AN (Nov 15, 2016)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier; 8 g/l dosage; L206454 17741): Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, with suave mineral and smoky lees notes adding complexity. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing very good punch to its strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. Opens up smoothly with air and picks up a bitter rhubarb quality that lingers onto the long, tightly focused finish. This bottling showed more brawny character than many past renditions of this cuvée, but with no lack of vivacity." (JR) (Jan 2015)

92 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"A blend of 40% Chardonnay from several grands cru sites, plus 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier. The base wine is 2014, supported by 40% grand cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reserve wine from 2012 and 2013. It is 100% vinified in stainless steel tanks before undergoing malolactic fermentation, with a final dosage of 9g/l. It has a pale salmon hue and a fine mousse, with a firm nose of ripe red fruit and citrus zest. The palate is round but elegant, boasting a fresh acid structure to balance the creamy apple and bold redcurrant fruit." - Tina Gellie (May 23, 2018)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"With its ripe texture and delicious red-fruit flavor, this wine has a tangy mineral edge and a fine balance. It offers softness (because of that balance) that veers towards dry. It is a fine apéritif style, rich and ready to drink." (Dec 2017)
