Champagne Billecart-Salmon is an independent and family-owned champagne house situated in the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Ay in the heart of Champagne. It was founded in 1818 after the marriage of Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon.

Since then, for almost 200 years, every member of the Billecart family has continued to stand by their oath of giving priority to quality and striving for excellence. Today, the 6th generation is represented by Francois and Antoine Roland-Billecart, who lead this independent house with the support of their father, Jean Roland-Billecart. The firm owns 74 acres of its own vines and purchases grapes from growers comprising another 346 acres. Ninety percent of the fruit for Billecart comes from 40 crus within a 20-mile radius of Epernay.

The Billecart portfolio includes the Brut Reserve, Brut Rose, Extra Brut, Demi-Sec, Brut Sous Bois, Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart, and the ultimate expression for the House, the vintage Le Clos Saint Hilaire, a blanc de noirs Champagne sourced from a tiny plot planted in 1964.

The winery employs sustainable viticulture practices, without the use of pesticides and herbicides, and the wines are aged in oak in Billecart's limestone cellars.

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

Its pale and bright pink color is adorned with warm glints of gold, and its delicate slowly rising bubbles give it a persistent mousse. This cuvee unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits. Its special method of vinification gives this cuvee a light, elegant flavor, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry. This rose 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 flavors.

The 9998 Billecart-Salmon Rose is a Champagne Blend wine hailing from the esteemed region of Champagne, France. With its captivating salmon color, this wine is a true gem that exudes elegance and sophistication. It is produced by Billecart-Salmon, a renowned producer known for crafting exceptional sparkling wines.

Upon pouring, the wine reveals a lacy texture that tantalizes the senses. Its precise balance is a testament to the winemaker's skill, with the well-honed acidity seamlessly integrated with subtle, chalky minerality. The palate is a delicate dance of flavors, showcasing notes of nectarine, white cherry, slivered almond, and pickled ginger. Each sip is a journey of discovery, with layers of complexity unfolding on the tongue.

A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, this rosé Champagne is a harmonious symphony of grape varieties. The 40% Chardonnay contributes crispness and brightness, while the Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier add depth and structure. The result is a wine that offers both finesse and depth.

Renowned wine critics have bestowed high praises upon this wine. Wine Spectator awarded it a score of 92, describing it as mouthwatering with a delicate range of flavors. James Suckling was equally impressed, giving it a score of 93 and noting its attractive salmon color and tight tension on the palate. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate rated it 91, highlighting its bursting scents of red berries and stone fruits.

The 9998 Billecart-Salmon Rose is a wine that can be enjoyed now but also has the potential for further aging. Its dry style and tight minerality make it a versatile companion for a wide range of dishes. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply indulging in a moment of luxury, this rosé Champagne is sure to elevate the experience.
