2010 Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1665197

"The first ever straight vintage rosé from the masters of the style at Billecart. This wine is composed of 55% Chardonnay from the grand crus of Chouilly, Mesnil and Cramant and 45% Pinot Noir from Verzenay, Mareuil and Ludes. The red wine comes from ancient vines in the Valleofois vineyard just next to the Clos des Goisses in Mareuil. This incredible wine has the pure, subtle fruit that this great house is famous for on a frame that is as delicate and fine as one could imagine. The finish is nearly blanc de blanc like, with excellent lift and great chalk character." -Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer

This splendid 2010 Billecart Brut Rose is a stunner to drink. Compressed red berries of wild strawberry, savory craisins, and dried plums. The nose gives a fragment of dried rose petals florals and hibiscus tea. I can't say how much I loved drinking this Champagne. I recommend buying a couple of bottles and laying this beauty down and revisit it in 10 years.

This is a delicious and fantastic Champagne and continues the tradition of excellence that one expects from Billecart Salmon. The nose has a lot going on. It is beautiful and inviting with hints of red fruits. Most important, it is lively and inviting. In the mouth it is elegant, dry and complex, refreshing and very pleasing.

A delicious and elegant rose champagne that will be revered by any fan of Billecart-Salmon. The palate is full of bright, refreshing notes of strawberry, watermelon, and Bing cherries, which are elevated by the mouthwatering acidity and effervescence of this brut Rose. The mid-palate showcases wonderful brioche and toasted almond notes that add further depth and complexity. The finish is long and shows off a soft caraway seed note and minerality. This is a wine that will make any occasion special.

Crushed ripe wild strawberries, creamy chalky mineral, layers of candied cherry and spice make up a redolent and concentrated core of fruit, lifted by creamy mousse and bright, but time-tampered, acidity. This is an unbelievable treat for the price, considering all the Grand Cru sourcing for the fruit. Grab this one while its still in stock.

I had the extreme pleasure of tasting this beautiful Brut Rose last Fall and it is wonderful to revisit it six months later to see how it has progressed. The complex nose has deep cherry scents, with compote notes, vanilla cake, and just a smidge of wet stone. On the palate, It starts out, and retains, a very nice bright character with more dark cherry fruit, black raspberry and a touch of orange marmalade. There is a very long finish that grips the back of the throat with crisp acidity and a small bit of sea salt. Extremely delicious now but, will also cellar well. I see a bottle appearing at a tasting with my Champagne tasting group!

The beauty of this Champagne Rose is impossible to describe! It's so complex and layered with multitudes of notes and flavors. It starts with delicate raspberry parfait notes with touch of creamy brioche. Then it turns into raspberry and strawberry coulis, It's bright, with light mineral component and medium acidity. Finish goes on forever!

If you love the non-vintage Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose, and I know many of our customers do, then do yourself a favor and take home at least one bottle of this beautiful champagne. It pours a gorgeous gold-flecked pink, and has aromas of Rainier cherry, fresh baked brioche, and Chantilly cream. The very fine bead gives this champagne a plush, velvety texture, and it has the classic delicate flavor profile that I love in the non-vintage bottling. But here, the cherry and raspberry flavors are deeper, with subtle exotic spice notes, and a hint of savory character. I love the freshness and zippy acidity, and the lovely long finish of red raspberries and subtle chalk. A real treat for the champagne lover who's had it all, and a crowd-pleaser for everyone else, I can't recommend this highly enough!

One of the greatest vintage champagnes I have tasted- pink or otherwise! With a gorgeous strawberry and copper color and the most perfect tiny bead of bubbles, this wine is just fun to look at. On the nose, it has the pastry crust aromas from over 10 years of ageing on the lees, and subtle, detailed dark maraschino cherry from the ancient vine Pinot Noir that gives the wine its color. The easy drinking, bright and light style of this wine belies the inner complexity of spice, dried fruit and deep chalky minerality in the glass if you pay attention to it. This is a chance to obtain the unattainable, and I will be putting a case in my cellar for the future… If I can keep my hands off of it!
Drink from 2023 to 2035
