Billecart Salmon Brut Rose (NV)
A lovely Rose Champagne in an almost vinous style, with mouthwatering acidity and a fine, lacy mousse carrying appealing flavours of ripe raspberry, white cherry fruit, star anise, mandarin orange peel and honeysuckle. Lightly chalky on the lasting finish.
96 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine
After decades of tasting and savouring the Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne, this wine remains one of my favourite wines in the world. This wine is fresh, bright, and steady with its alluring aromas and flavours of red currants and strawberries. Enjoy it with fresh salmon and avocado hand rolls.

The palest of rosés, this is an elegant, structured wine. Its dryness is balanced by the fine apple, red-currant fruits, and the strong sense of minerality. Fragrant and lightly structured, this fine bottling is ready to drink.
92 Points - Wine Spectator
A lively rosé Champagne with pleasing, citrusy juiciness to the flavours of steeped raspberry, white peach and blanched almond. A subtle thread of chalky minerality winds through the finish. Drink now through 2023.
91 Points - Decanter
Based on the 2016 harvest, this is floral and citrussy, showing a lithe, graceful balance. It's a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Meunier, with about 40% reserve wine, and red wine accounts for 7% of the blend. A tangerine-like acidity enlivens its delicate, subtly expansive flavours of raspberry and strawberry. While it feels ripe and full in taste on the palate, it never loses its sense of refinement and poise, finishing with exact length and depth.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Based on the 2016 vintage, the new NV Brut Rosé from Billarcart-Salmon has turned out nicely, mingling notes of red berries and plums with notions of peach, dried flowers and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and elegant, it's bright and charming, with a great core of fruit, racy acids and a pinpoint mousse. Giving and demonstrative, it's already drinking well.
