Billecart-Salmon 2008 "Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon" Brut Rosé, Champagne, France

In 1818, Nicolas François Billecart and his wife Elisabeth Salmon founded the house of Billecart-Salmon in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, which now stands as the oldest continuously family-owned and operated house in Champagne. The estate is currently managed by the family’s seventh generation, brothers François and Antoine Roland-Billecart, while the cellars lie in the hands of Florent Nys.

Winemaker / Chef du Cave: Florent Nys

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: 55% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de
la Marne. 45% Chardonnay from the Côtes des Blancs.

Vinification: 9% of the Pinot Noir is vinified as red wine with grapes from Valofroy,
a parcel of old vines in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ with a full southern exposure. 17% of the wine is fermented and matured in 15 year old oak barrels.
Dosage: 7 g/l. Disg. 10/2020

Tasting Notes: This champagne is delicate with dried roses, blood oranges, white cherries, and a bright chalkiness. An incredible depth of flavor, this wine is an excellent pairing for light fare, seafood and caviar.
