Description

Established in 1818 by the visionary couple Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon, the Billecart-Salmon House stands as a testament to a rich tapestry of history. Spanning nearly two centuries, the Billecart family has gracefully transmitted the closely guarded secrets of crafting exceptional champagne from one generation to the next. Among its myriad distinctions, the Champagne House stands out as one of the rare few to remain steadfastly family-owned.

Encompassing approximately 50 hectares, with grapes sourced from a sprawling 170 hectares of land, the Billecart-Salmon House has earned acclaim for its commitment to quality. Renowned for the excellence of its vintages, the House meticulously curates the finest grapes, underscoring a dedication to the art of winemaking.

In a captivating ode to Elisabeth Salmon, co-founder of the House, a cuvée was crafted in 1988, bearing her name. This exceptional creation distinguishes itself through its luminosity, refined purity, and distinctive character. A masterpiece that delicately encapsulates the essence of our premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs, this rare and refined wine is a testament to an ancestral savoir-faire. It is an eloquent expression of the meticulous art of blending and the unwavering commitment to selecting sought-after vintages.

Incorporating fully 10% still red wine, Billecart's 2009 Brut Rosé Cuvée 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. In 2009, it was vinified entirely in stainless steel. Drink 2022 - 2035.
