Billecart-Salmon 'La Vie en Roses' - Gift Set
La Vie en Roses brings together Billecart-Salmon's two iconic roses in one beautiful set. A perfect introduction to the house style!
The production secrets and the vinification method of this cuvee go back to the origins of the House of Billecart-Salmon and have been handed down for seven generations. The Brut Rose is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine.
On the eye: Its pale and bright pink color is adorned with warm glints of gold and its delicate slowly rising bubbles give it a persistent mousse.
On the nose: This cuvee unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits.
On the palate: Its special method of vinification gives this cuvee a light, elegant flavor, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.
This rose champagne is an ideal partner as an aperitif and can also accompany a dish of wild salmon or sushi. For dessert, it will add a sublime touch to red fruit flavors.
Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon 2008
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. It embodies with subtlety the signature of the top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs. Allowing time to play its role is behind the grandeur of this vintage cuvée.
On the eye: A luminous visual presence with soft shimmering coppery reflections and a deep salmon pink hue.
On the nose: A refreshing and sensual sensory expression of citrus peels and red berry jelly, with the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic amplitude (Plougastel strawberry, Mara des Bois and vine peach). Beautifully refined and mature olfactory notes, releasing a distinctive perfume of scented soft spices and wild rasberry pulp.
On the palate: Harmonious blossoming of gourmet flavors (tangerine, blood orange and Reinette apple tart). A fullbodied and layered mouthfeel, evolving towards a chalky edge and a lingering finish of citron zest and red and white currants.
This great wine is endowed with great finesse and delicacy, its personality shining through textures and flavors. An aromatic charm coupled with a rare mineral dimension, ideally paired with poulet de Bresse or Breton langoustines royales.
