BILLECART-SALMON - Champagne Cuvée Élisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé 2007
The Cuvée Élisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé 2007 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.
A salmon pink tint and sparkling luminous visual presence is underscored by a gracious and persistent effervescent veil. A very seductive visual ensemble, with a soft shimmering reflection, rising to an accomplished articulation of a great vintage.
Refreshing sensorial expression of crisp red berries, citrus peel and stone fruits. With the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic generosity (fresh figs, white peach, almond macaroons). Ripe olfactive notes respectfully soften the distinctive perfume of wild strawberries and scented spring roses.
A powerful yet delicate impact owing to the noble and harmonious maturing of flavours (nectarine, cardamom). An ample and pure character in the mouth unveiling the soft spices of tangy mandarin and the persistent flavours of cedar and exotic wood.
This great wine, with its extreme finesse, is a sign of the delicate personality of its textures and flavours. An aromatic charm with a rare mineral dimension, marries well with beautiful creamy poultry, in particular poulet de Bresse, langoustines royales and crunchy hibiscus macaroons. Serve at 11-12°.
Created in 1988 as a tribute to the co-founder Elisabeth Salmon, this cuvée distinguishes itself through its intensity of beautiful and elegant flavours.
