2007 Billecart-Salmon Elisabeth Salmon Rose

Media Reviews

Jancis Robinson

50% Pinot Noir (premier and grands cru vineyards from Montagne de Reims and Grande Vallée de la Marne). 50% Chardonnay (grand cru vineyards from Côte des Blancs). Nine to ten years lees ageing. Dosage is 7 g/l. Third vintage of this wine, previous two were 2002 and the lighter 2006. 2009 has not been fully assessed yet and 2008 may not deliver sufficient fruit.Mid salmon colour. Rather muted nose. Pretty austere and chewy still. This seems quite low key to me…Rather intellectual. Masses of structure. Not an immediate hit. Serve with membrillo or candied fruit. You have to concentrate! 17 points

Aromas of red berries, orange rind, dried flowers, warm brioche and spices introduce the 2007 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth, one of the highlights of this tasting chez Billecart. It`s full-bodied, broad and vinous, with an enveloping attack and a bright underlying spice of acidity, revealing plenty of chalky dry extract and concentration, concluding with a long and precise finish. Despite the style of the vintage and the fact that malolactic fermentation was largely blocked, this is quite a textural, powerful wine. 97 points

Antonio Galloni

A Champagne of precision and class, the 2007 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth is light, airy and finely cut. The blend is 50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne and 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, with a touch of still Pinot from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Not surprisingly, the Chardonnay plays a significant role in shaping the wine’s personality and overall feel. Citrus, orchard fruit, crushed berry and floral notes are all nicely lifted. Partial malolactic fermentation keeps the flavors and textures vibrant. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. 95 points
