Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Champagne Cuvee Elisabeth 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Created in 1988 as a tribute to the co-founder Elisabeth Salmon. Rich and complex aromatic generosity on the nose with refreshingly crisp red berries. On the palate, a harmonious maturity with extreme finesse and a delciate personality. A rare mineral dimension and an endless finish. This cuvee is made from an equal blend of Pinot Noir Grand Cru and Chardonnay Grand Cru. Between 8-10% of Pinot Noir is vinified as red wine. 20% of the blend is fermented in barriques. Aged 10 years on lees.
