Billecart Salmon 'Elisabeth Salmon' Brut Rose 2009

Product description

A luminous appearance with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue. A highly alluring ensemble with a lustrous, elegant sparkle. A refreshing yet sultry sensory experience of citrus peel and red and black berry jelly, with the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic range (blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries). Gorgeously refined and mature olfactory notes bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and candied violets.

A distinctive mouthfeel arising from a measured strength which is simultaneously delicate and charming, with flavors developing in perfect harmony (panettone, candied clementines and ginger). A delicate character in the mouth revealing a chalky edge and persistent finish of citron zest.

This highly sophisticated wine presents its personality with wonderful delicacy of texture and flavor. An aromatic charm with an unusual mineral quality: pair with poached lobster, tartare of sakura leaf, tomato and rhubarb.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Incorporating fully 10% still red wine, Billecart's 2009 Brut Rose Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is showing beautifully, delivering fragrant aromas of plums, stone fruits, petals, sweet spices and marzipan. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegant, it's seamless and pillowy, with bright acids and a pure, precise profile, concluding with a bright, saline finish.

96 Points - James Suckling

Copper-orange color with aromas of grapefruit pith, cherry stones, dried roses, white pepper, pastries, walnuts and oyster shells. Refined and elegant with pretty, dried red and citrus fruit, layered with subtle spice and toast. Fine bubbles. Dry.

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast

One of the great roses, this Champagne named after a member of the family, is ripe with layers of red fruits and tight acidity.
