Billecart Salmon Rose NV
Billecart-Salmon is a rare Champagne houses in that it is still owned by the original family who established it in 1818. Its founder was Nicolas-Fran?ois Billecart and most of the grapes in today's Billecart-Salmon champagnes still come from a small family owned vineyard, with the balance bought in from the Marne Valley and Montagne de Reims.
This champagne house cultures its own yeasts, treating its base wines to long, slow, cool fermentations and the ros? is a traditional champagne style - which means a small portion of still red wine (Pinot Noir) was blended into this wine to add body, texture, richness and weight.
This is a superb, mouth watering champagne from a great producer.
