Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Champagne France, NV, 750
A classic must have Rosé Champagne
James Suckling - "This is clearly one of my favorite rosé Champagnes out there. I love the freshness and clarity in the wine, from its light pink color to crisp acidity and minerally, chalky character on the finish. It's full-bodied and dense yet agile with amazing length and beauty. Refreshing and vibrant. As it warms, it gives you delicate pinot noir character like Aloxe-Corton or another excellent appellation. Drink now."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, with suave mineral and smoky lees notes adding complexity. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing very good punch to its strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. Opens up smoothly with air and picks up a bitter rhubarb quality that lingers onto the long, tightly focused finish. This bottling showed more brawny character than many past renditions of this cuvée, but with no lack of vivacity."
Wine Spectator - "Fresh and accessible, this finely balanced rosé shows a delicate palate of white raspberry, pastry and candied lemon zest, with a hint of briny oyster shell riding the lacy mousse. "
