About the Domaine:
In 1818, Nicolas François Billecart and his wife Elisabeth Salmon founded the house of Billecart-Salmon in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, which now stands as the oldest continuously family-owned and operated house in Champagne. The estate is currently managed by the family’s seventh generation, brothers François and Antoine Roland-Billecart, while the cellars lie in the hands of Florent Nys.

After 33 years, François Domi has handed over the baton of Chief Winemaker to Florent, who has been working as an apprentice under the watchful eye of François since 2005, is now ready to take over the reins.

55% Chardonnay from the most epic Grand Crus of Chouilly, Mesnil and Cramant! 45% Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Ludes and Verzenay.

100% vinification in stainless steel tanks. Partial malolactic fermentation. Aged on the lees for 130 months with a Dosage of 3 g/l.

This is the first ever Brut Rose Vintage released by Billecart-Salmon.

Notes from the Winemaker:

Appearance: The Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Vintage 2010 displays a beautiful burnished coppery tint, instantly recognizable as a hallmark of Billecart-Salmon Rosé.

Aroma: Upon opening, the aromas of this vintage leap from the glass, enchanting the senses with a delightful bouquet. Fragrant notes of ripe strawberry, luscious melon, and zesty citrus intertwine with the freshness of aromatic herbs.

Palate: With the first sip, the wine reveals a captivating array of flavors. The palate is generously filled with vibrant red berries and the invigorating essence of pink grapefruit. Subtle hints of white pepper add an intriguing spice, while a delicate touch of burnt sugar enhances its complexity. The finale is adorned with the tangy allure of tart pomegranate, leaving a lasting and luxurious impression.

Food Pairing: This exquisite wine is a versatile companion for the entire dinner experience. Its elegance gracefully pairs with delicate crudo dishes, showcasing its finesse. Simultaneously, its weight and depth harmonize with heartier fare such as Beef Wellington, providing a delightful balance and enhancing the overall dining experience.

Ratings & Reviews
James Tran:
"This is the very first time that the world's most iconic and respected Rosé Champagne has released as a single vintage, and it's as stunning as we all expected! Compared to the non-vintage, you experience a clear upgrade in refinement, minerality, structure, precision and length, while still delivering the signature understated smooth and silky style. This will age for 15 more years, but how could anyone resist?" (8/5/23)
