Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne: Refreshing. Vibrant. Excellent acidity & balance. Strawberry. Raspberry. Orange zest. Chalky minerality. The list goes on & on! Simply beautiful! My new gold standard for Brut Rosé! Cheers 🔥🥂 — a month ago

Brut Réserve Champagne Blend

A plethora of fine, persistent bubbles in the glass. Really pretty golden straw color here. Big splashes of pear and apples up front with some delicious honey. Just a touch of wild strawberry and redcurrant express themselves but the creamy lemon aromas really set this baby off.

Billecart-Salmon is a known quantity. There are no real surprises here and honestly few champagnes can do that year in and year out without getting stale. They absolutely get it right. Taut structure with harmonious balance. Delicate yet forceful, this is a rich bubbly with plenty of depth and character.

Stone fruits introduce the intense palate with the customary brioche showing too. Roasted hazelnuts and dried herbs. The red fruits are particularly generous on the palate. A wonderfully attractive champagne.
