NV Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Champagne

Images

An iconic Brut Rosé for good reason. Pale salmon in color (of course), full of melon and faintly floral notes, this is around 45% Chardonnay, and the remaining 55% is comprised of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Dosage here is a modest 7 grams per liter of sugar, keeping things dry and crisp. One of the reasons Billecart rosé is so popular today is because they were one of the first houses to really focus on that style, back in 1954.

The word "Billecart" holds a special place in the hearts of Champagne aficionados. Brought into the United States by an importer known for hand-selecting accounts, even being able to offer "Billy Bubbles" carries a certain badge of merit. But it's more than just the chase that makes Billecart special… what's in the bottle more than justifies the reputation of this Champagne house.

Founded in 1818, and now under the seventh consecutive generation of family ownership and winemaking guidance, Billecart is known primarily for its elegance and balance (especially in rosé). The house style always includes a three-vintage blend with the cuvée built for consistency from release to release (the basic formula has remained unchanged since 1945). Utilizing mostly Grand Cru vineyards - largely centered around Épernay - and blending all three of the traditional Champagne grapes, the winemaking team has an enviable spice rack at their disposal. The result is a product which one notable colleague refers to as "lingerie for the mouth." In one of the world's truly unique wine regions, Billecart-Salmon continues to set itself apart.

    This was a gift to our boss and he absolutely loved it as it was the same champagne that he and his wife served at their wedding.
