Billecart-Salmon Champagne Blend Champagne Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: This vintage stands out for its amazing coppery-pink glints underscored by an outstanding string of pearls and a lasting but fine and delicate mousse. Aroma: Expressive and complex nose. Exotic wood, fresh figs, candied fruits, wild strawberry and rose petal. Palate: Very long and complex in mouth, this cuvée impresses by its persistence. Red fruit, spicy and mint aromas. Serving: This finely complex great wine can be laid down for 10 to 15 years and will accompany the most superb dishes, from poultry to a delicate dessert of red fruits.

The very first thing I got from this was an aroma of milk. The palate followed suit with a very creamy texture with hints of strawberry.

Pale orange-pink. Fresh, mineral-accented aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and raspberry, with hints of dried rose and white pepper. Zesty, palate-staining red berry and blood orange flavors gain flesh and weight in the mid-palate, picking up a note of candied flowers. Dry and taut but packs a punch, finishing with outstanding clarity and stony persistence. This is still a baby.

This rosé was first made in 1988 to honor Elisabeth Salmon, one of the founders of this highly-respected Champagne houses. It's made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The 2000 Brut Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon is refined and elegant, with lovely depth and richness in its fragrant fruit. The 2000 Elisabeth Salmon is weightier than the NV Brut Rose yet everything is simply in the right place. This is a gorgeous, wonderfully expressive Champagne from Billercart-Salmon that is even more impressive than it was last year. The 2000 Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, of which 10% is still Pinot juice. Roughly 10% of the wine was aged in cask, and the wine was bottled with 9 grams of dosage. This is Lot: L598956 32009J. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
