K&L Notes

Just one more example of why Billecart-Salmon is easily our favorite Champagne producer. This is vintage Rose at it's finest. A delightful opener for your meal. Billecart makes one of the great Rosés of the world, so treat yourself! Rich and elegant with toast and fresh, yeasty notes that combine with citrus and strawberry fruit and a light fennel accent. Absolutely delicious! According to the winery: "Created in 1988 in homage to Elisabeth Salmon, co-founder of the maison, this is an exceptional cuvée of great distinction that has intensity of flavors and a beautiful elegance. This rosé Champagne, rare and sought after, offers the signature subtlety of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is the signature of a exceptional vintage."

    I tasted this with Antoine Billecart in October, and it lives up to its lofty reputation as the best rosé in the world. It is composed of even parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but it is the red wine that is added (about 9%) that puts this wine in a class of its own. The red Pinot Noir is all from the 1er Cru of Mareuil, in fact from one 80-year-old plot called the Valofroy. This ultimately elegant Champagne has kaleidoscopic complexity with everything inside from white flowers to subtle hazelnuts. The Volnay-like character of the red wine is in the background now, but for the patient, this wine will be a treat on the level of any wine in the world!
    Drink from 2016 to 2046
