This is always the failsafe Champagne every year. If you love Champagne, and furthermore you love Rose Champagne with its more fruity expression and complexity, then the Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose NV is the value for money Rose Champagne one can always rely upon to bring satisfaction.
The Billecart-Salmon Rose NV is always so fresh & mouth-watering. A tiny addition of Red wine (Pinot Noir) is subtly added to the end blend (as are most). The final Champagne blend is 35 per cent Pinot Noir, 35 per cent Pinot Meunier and 30 per cent chardonnay, cold-fermented in stainless steel with cultured yeasts. The intensely flowery bouquet is followed by a palate crammed with strawberry and dried flower flavours, then a joyous refreshing finish. Drinking this is a simple pleasing exercise.
When considering the cost of most Rose’s these days, it’s value for money, even with its normal retail price of $120 is phenomenal – but for under $100, it’s a steal…be quick though as there’re only 6 bottles left.
