Billecart-Salmon 'Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon' Rose 2012


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 unique character. This rare and refined wine embodies with subtlety the signature of the 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.

The Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon 2012 vintage is the expression of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs. It offers a unique and sensorial experience, the fruit of more than a decade of patience.


On the eye: Its appearance is luminous, with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue.

On the nose: There is a refreshing sensorial experience of citrus peel and red berry jelly. With the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic generosity (Plougastel and Mara des Bois strawberries, pêche de vigne). Pretty, refined and mature olfactory notes that bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and wild raspberry pulp.

On the palate: A measured strength which is delicate and charming at the same time, with the harmonious maturing of flavors (mandarin, blood orange, and Reinette apple tart). An ample and full character in the mouth unveiling a chalky edge and persistent finish of citron zest as well as red and white currants.


This great and highly refined wine presents its personality with wonderful delicacy of texture and flavor. The aromatic charm of a rare mineral aspect to pair with beautiful poulet de Bresse with crayfish or a few Breton langoustines royales.
