Aromas of red berries, orange rind, dried flowers, warm brioche and spices introduce the 2007 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth, one of the highlights of this tasting chez Billecart. It's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with an enveloping attack and a bright underlying spice of acidity, revealing plenty of chalky dry extract and concentration, concluding with a long and precise finish. Despite the style of the vintage and the fact that malolactic fermentation was largely blocked, this is quite a textural, powerful wine. (WK)
Released onto the market in the spring of 2019, this rare prestige cuvee rose from Billecart-Salmon is a stunning blend of 50:50 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Pinot comes from prime vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and Marne Valley, while the Chardonnay comes from top sites in the Cote des Blancs. A beautifully subtle and sophisticated oeil de perdrix colour, this also comes with a very fine bead which threads its way from the base of the glass to the surface of the wine. The dainty red fruit is soft and supple with elegance, energy and a gently persistent vinosity. The dosage of 6g/l is perfectly weighted against the fresh acidity. It has great length and equilibrium - this will age with ease. (JS)
A Champagne of precision and class, the 2007 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth is light, airy and finely cut. The blend is 50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne and 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, with a touch of still Pinot from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Not surprisingly, the Chardonnay plays a significant role in shaping the wine’s personality and overall feel. Citrus, orchard fruit, crushed berry and floral notes are all nicely lifted. Partial malolactic fermentation keeps the flavors and textures vibrant. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. (AG)
Beautifully toned red fruit with background mushroom and spice aromas, too. This is very fresh and gently complex. The palate has a vibrant array of zesty and succulent red berries and delivers an impressive, fluid and gently tart, strawberry finish.
This palest of rosés is ethereal, with a light texture that floats over the acidity and red-fruit flavors. Even after 12 years, the wine is still fresh and poised. It is ready to drink but even another two years would make it even better. (WK)
An elegant rosé Champagne, fresh and focused, with the silky mousse carrying a fine range of nectarine and white cherry fruit, underscored by grated ginger, marzipan and saline flavors. Offers a lingering, creamy finish. (AN)
Deep salmon pink. Lots of impact and savoury fruit on the palate. Real orange-peel zest. Quite chewy but very serious. For the table. Enormous contrast with their NV Rosé. (JR) 17/20
