BILLECART-SALMON ROSÉ, Brut. Champagne (Half Bottle)
Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Size of bottle: 375ml
Area: Billecart-Salmon are based at Mareuil-sur-Ay, just north of Epernay
Grape Variety: Two thirds Chardonnay, a third Pinot Noir. 13% of the total comes from red wine (also Pinot Noir) added after to the blend to achieve the appropriate pink colour
Producer: Billecart -Salmon, one of the few remaining family owned Grande marques of champagne
Cellar Potential: I like Billecart Rosé as young as possible. Or keep it for 2 years to develop chocolate and coffee overtones
Old Bridge Rating: Which smart restaurant doesn't list Billecart Rosé? Those in the know would all agree it has for some time been the most consistently excellent pink Champagne.
Also in Magnums and normal bottles
Press Reviews: Consistently rated as the wine trade's favourite pink Champagne
