Depth and complexity
Created in 1988 as a tribute to Elisabeth Salmon, one of the House’s founders, this cuvée is set apart by its radiance, refined purity as well as a unique character. This rare and refined wine embodies with subtlety the signature of Billecart-Salmon top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs. An ancestral savoir-faire that is reflected in the meticulous art of blending as well as the rigorous selection of a sought-after vintage.
|GRAPES:||55% Pinot Noir 45% Chardonnay|
A luminous appearance with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue.
A refreshing yet sultry sensory experience of citrus peel and red and black berry jelly, with the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic range (blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries). Gorgeously refined and mature olfactory notes bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and candied violets
A distinctive mouthfeel arising from a measured strength which is simultaneously delicate and charming, with flavours developing in perfect harmony (panettone, candied clementines and ginger). Persistent finish of citron zest.
This highly sophisticated wine presents its personality with wonderful delicacy of texture and flavour. An aromatic charm with an unusual mineral quality: pair with poached lobster, tartare of sakura leaf, tomato and rhubarb.
|SERVICE TEMPERATURE:||11-12 °C|
Incorporating fully 10% still red wine, Billecart's 2009 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon is showing beautifully, delivering fragrant aromas of plums, stone fruits, petals, sweet spices and marzipan. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegant, it's seamless and pillowy, with bright acids and a pure, precise profile, concluding with a bright, saline finish. In 2009, it was vinified entirely in stainless steel.
