Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne Billecart-Salmon was founded with the marriage of Nicolas-François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon in 1818. Situated in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, near Epernay. Champagne Billecart-Salmon is still a family-run organisation with seventh generation Mathieu Roland-Billecart overseeing business. In 2016 Chef de Cave François Domi retired after 30 years with Billecart and handed over to his deputy Florent Nys who started with the business in 2005. The vineyards are overseen by Denis Blée and all of the team are members of the eight strong "tasting committee" along with 6th generation François Roland-Billecart and Antoine Roland-Billecart and fifth generation Jean Roland-Billecart. By 2020 production had expanded with grapes now coming from 300 hectares and 40 crus mostly within 20 kms of the winery.

The production secrets and the vinification method of Billecart-Salmon Rosé date back to the origins of the house and have been passed down seven generations, ensuring consistent quality throughout the ages. Approximately a tenth of the Pinot Noir in the blend is vinified as red wine. All the wine is fermented in stainless steel with no oak contact so you have that bright fresh red fruit characteristic and hints of the smokey character from the reductive winemaking.

Tasting Note: This pale pink champagne has flecks of gold in the light with a persistent mousse. On the nose: aromas of red fruits and hints of citrus. A well-balanced acidic and delicate palate of strawberries and raspberries leads to a brioche mid-palate. On the finish: a hint of spice and a continued theme of red berries and citrus. It is no surprise this rosé is so renowned.

Expert Reviews
92/100
Roger Voss
“This pale-pink wine is stylish, crisp and relatively dry. Full of wild strawberry and citrus, it is lively, bright and lightly perfumed. The texture shows a touch of tannin as well as delicate minerality. Drink this well-balanced wine now.”
91/100
William Kelley
“Based on the 2018 vintage, Billecart's new NV Brut Rosé incorporates 40% reserve wines and some 6% still red wine. Bursting with scents of sweet red berries, peonies, stone fruits, white cherries, freshly baked bread and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming, with a seamless and enveloping core of fruit and a lively, fine-boned profile.”
92/100
Josh Raynolds
“(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.”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Tasted blind. Very pale greyish salmon. Rich rose-petal aroma with quite a bit of voluptuous sweetness. Crisp acidity. Brisk but satisfying. Slightly astringent end.
Drink 2018-2024”
92/100
Essi Avellan
“Created in the 1960s, an era when rosés were not en vogue, this cuvée was envisaged 'not to look or taste too much like a rosé'. With its genius recipe, today this wine belongs among Champagne's most emblematic rosés. It comes with a hallmark delicate peachy colour and a pristine nose of delicious peach fruit. Its further charms include a whiff of roses, soft spiciness, apple compote, pencil shavings and apricot marmalade. The ethereal lightness of the palate suits the delicacy of the whole. Silky, dynamic and vibrantly fruity, it all comes together in a finish of perfect purity and suitably dry deliciousness. Disgorged 1/22; dosage 9g/l”
16.5/20
Richard Hemming MW
“Very pale onion skin, and aroms that only whisper at red fruit. Spicy, delicate, bright. (RH)”
