Notes from the Winemaker:
Created in 1988 as a tribute to the House’s co-founder Elisabeth Salmon, this cuvée distinguishes itself through its sparkle and refined purity of grandeur and unique character. This great, rare and sought after wine, subtly offers the signature of our top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs. The presence of an ancestral savoir-faire is recognized through the art of assemblage and rigorous selection from an exceptional harvest.

Appearance: 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.

Aroma: It is a 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.

Palate: A powerful yet delicate impact owing to the noble and harmonious maturing of flavors (nectarine, cardamom). An ample and pure character in the mouth unveiling the soft spices of tangy mandarin and the persistent flavors of cedar and exotic wood.

Serving: This great wine, with its extreme finesse, is a sign of the delicate personality of its textures and flavors. 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°.

Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Created in 1988 as a tribute to one of the house’s founders, Elisabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon's iconic 2007 Millésime Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth displays a beautifully radiant, shimmering orange-salmon color. The bouquet of this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend is as intense as it is delicate and vinous, displaying red and yellow-fleshed fruit intertwined with floral, chalky and citrus notes as well as a noble sur lie character. Round, lush and delicate on the palate, this is a highly elegant, charming, beautifully balanced rosé with great finesse and amazingly fine grip on the long yet pure, tensioned, well-structured and stimulatingly salty finish. This rosé Champagne is close to perfection! A small percentage of the Pinot Noir—from old vines in the south-facing Valofroy parcel in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ—was vinified as red wine and added to give this unique color and vinosity. The other Pinots are sourced in the grand crus Verzenay and Aÿ, and the Chardonnay comes from grand crus in the Côte des Blancs, namely Chouilly, Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger." - Stephan Reinhardt (Dec 2018)

94 Points - Wine Spectator:

"An elegant rosé Champagne, fresh and focused, with the silky mousse carrying a fine range of nectarine and white cherry fruit, underscored by grated ginger, marzipan and saline flavors. Offers a lingering, creamy finish. Drink now through 2027. From France." — A.N. (12/24/19)
