  • Product details
    In 1818 Nicolas Billecart married Elizabeth Salmon and founded Billecart-Salmon although it wasn’t until the 1970s, that Jean Roland-Billecart decided to work on a champagne which was considered second class: a Brut Rosé. The gamble paid off, and the Brut Rosé Non-Vintage has since become Billecart-Salmon’s flagship cuvée. This iconic Champagne has won global prestige for consistency, and timelessness and comes in an elegant silver Billecart-Salmon branded box for extra effect.
  • Tasting notes
    Billecart-Salmon NV Rosé is a harmonious integration of rose petal, strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant characters, supported by a fine acid structure and mouth-filling chalky minerals. The intense fruity and floral notes are balanced with touches of earthy spices that extend into a sensual, refined finish. Great as an aperitif it will pair well with light seafood canapés.

Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide

Billecart's non-vintage rosé is an exceedingly elegant style, built on a very different blend to its Brut Réserve. The restraint and minerality of chardonnay takes the lead (40%), with each of the pinots comprising 30%. Just seven to eight percent pinot noir red wine from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ adds more aromatic effect than colour, producing a wine that Antoine likes to refer to as "champagne rosé" rather than "rosé champagne." He takes delight in recalling a tasting in which he poured the wine for sommeliers in black glasses. Not one identified it as a rosé. Billecart's classic, pale salmon hue introduces a wine of gorgeous aromatic purity, the perfume of rose petals and subtlety of strawberry hull (where the strawberry meets the stalk). The palate adds a suggestion of fresh raspberry, carrying forward long and linear with lingering, fine, chalky minerality.
