Billecart-Salmon Elisabeth Salmon Rose
Description & Technical Information
-
Billecart-Salmon's exceptional prestige cuvée rosé was created in 1988 as a tribute to the House’s co-founder. Less than 10% of the Pinot Noir is vinified as red wine. The grapes used to make the red wine are from Valofroy, a plot of old vines on the slopes of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ with a southern exposure. Billecart-Salmon Elisabeth Salmon Rosé is not always released in chronological order, but rather when head winemaker François Domi believes it is ready for release.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Tasting Note: Initial aromas of citrus and complex red berries on the nose are carried through to the palate where fresh figs, peaches and almonds are abundant. Voluptuous hints of ripe fruits and wild strawberries. A champagne with a delicate balance of acidity and creamy textures. This rosé fully expresses the 2006 vintage and given some time to age this will improve and reward accordingly.
