Rose is the signature wine of Billecart-Salmon, a House that is considered to be the benchmark for this style of Champagne.
Pink Champagne is the most difficult sparkling wine to make. The color must be perfect and there shouldn’t be a trace of tannin. This requires a high level of skill as a winemaker, given that the wine will not be opened for at least 3 years.
Billecart-Salmon is considered to be one of the most stylish boutique Champagne houses. Since being founded in 1818 it has remained one of the best kept secrets in wine.
The gorgeous winery and underground cellars are hidden in a small village surrounded by vines. Billecart uses some old techniques such as basket presses, which gently extract the finest juice. Modern technology is used to create extra cold temperatures during fermentation, which extend the process, and add freshness, elegance and delicacy to the wines. There is an extra-long ageing period in the dark underground cellars, which allows the complex flavours to unfold.
Billecart-Salmon is pure luxury. We hope you enjoy it.
