    Description

    The Brut Rosé by Billecart-Salmon is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir white juice and Pinot Noir red juice.

    The Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé is pale pink taking on warm gold hues, and its delicate and slowly ascending bubbles create a long-lasting mousse. The subtle nose reveals an elegant bouquet of very refined red fruit notes.

    The particular method used to make this champagne results in a lightness of touch, an elegance on the palate and a superbly refreshing final.

    Strongly anchored in tradition, such as the use of barrels for the grand crus, Billecart-Salmon age their bottles in an extended network of caves cut out of the chalk hills, dating from the 17th and 19th century.

    The constant temperature – around 12°, enables a very fine effervescence to develop. The Brut Rosé from Billecart-Salmon is a champagne to fall in love with, a summer champagne, much appreciated by female palates for its balance and delicacy.

    The “trade secrets” and the winemaking methods go way back to the origins of the establishment, and have been passed down through seven generations.
