Tasting notes
Pale pink. Aromas of dried flowers, earth and talc, with red berries in the background. Dry, restrained and sophisticated, with subtly complex pinot-dominated flavors. Tactile but quite suave. An unusually grown-up style of rose, finishing with excellent persistence. I'd be in no hurry to drink this.
Billecart-Salmon is one of my favorite Champagne houses, and their non-vintage Rose (Lot #L85547401905M) is a consistent winner. A delicate pink color is accompanied by gorgeous sweet cherry, strawberry, and mineral-like scents, assertive medium-bodied flavors, a delicate, crisp personality, and surprising depth as well as persistence. A beautiful berry character in the finish adds to this impeccable rose's captivating style.
The epitome of good rosé Champagne at an affordable price, and no matter how often I taste it, I never fail to be impressed. It's like English strawberries and cream with homemade shortbread.
Pretty, delicate, floral scents of red berries, orange zest, poeach and bread dough. Super zingy acidity lifts flavors of orange peel, honey, caramel and cedar. Blindingly fresh finish.
