Billecart-Salmon 'Elisabeth Salmon' Brut Rosé 2008
One of the leading families of Champagne, this medium-sized, high-quality domain is one to be admired. Billecart-Salmon (Pronounced beel-kahr sahl-moh) has a fresh, clean and elegant style. They champion the use of the Meunier grape which is often added to other cuvées without fanfare in other houses. The absolutely pristine winemaking facilities located in Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ are overseen by multiple generations of the family as well as chef winemaker Francois Domi. The house purposely ferments at a lower temperature elongating the ferment to weeks and not days as can be standard in champagne, which helps capture the pristine nature of the fruit. Every step of the winemaking process at the house is artful, right down to the precision of the dosage which is unique for every disgorgement conducted in batches.
