Billecart-Salmon Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon Rosé 2009 Champagne 75cl

The Billecart-Salmon Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon Rosé 2008 stands out for its purity and expression that reveals a remarkable, individual character. The grapes used are selected from their best vineyard plots, with 45% Chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs and 55% Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Aÿ. 10% still red Pinot Noir is part of the blend. Primary fermentation is entirely done in stainless steel, and ageing on lees lasts for some 132 months in bottle. The result is a sumptuous, complex rosé that is delicious on release but with the capacity to age for over a decade further.

The exceptional cuvée rosé was created in 1988 to honor the house’s co-founder, Elisabeth Salmon, who married Nicolas-François Billecart in 1818.

2009 was a lovely vintage, if at times difficult for the growers. Spring was mild and wet, compensating somewhat for a dry winter, but also increasing disease pressure. Storms in July caused more problems, damaging some vineyards. August saw hot, dry weather, with cool evenings, and this facilitated good ripeness. In the end, the Champagnes from this vintage tend to be open, with forward, ripe fruit and sufficient acidity to bring balance.
It starts with an incredible nose of strawberry, blackcurrant and plum fruits, as well as orange peel, sweet spices and violet florals. The palate has a lovely creamy mousse, with layer upon layer of ginger, citrus and berry fruits. The finish brings great finesse, with well balanced acidity and a clean, precise close.
Sometimes overlooked, Rosé Champagne makes a delicious partner for all courses and cuisines. Try pairing with poached lobster, smoked ham canapés or sharp rhubarb desserts.
