The first time I had the opportunity to taste the Brut Rosé cuvée, and it was a long time ago now, was at the restaurant of Alain Passard. What I liked straight away was the vinous dimension of this cuvée. You can sense that behind the champagne there is a real wine there. Next it begins to unveil itself more intimately, with notes of citrus fruits and red berries which are more subtle and elegant. This cuvée showcases the mastery and knowledge of balance. It’s this subtle delicateness, born from harmony and finesse which I like in the Brut Rosé. For me, this champagne is an ideal partner to accompany the desserts that I create. I’m thinking about a lemon, strawberry and olive oil gateau, where the notes of the wine are in perfect harmony with the fruit. I also have on my menu an entirely lemon dessert which pairs perfectly with this cuvée and its citrus personality! For me, this champagne can be drunk at any point, breakfast lunch or dinner. At any time, it’s like a ray of sunlight that transcends the beauty of the moment.

A Romantic champagne
The production secrets and the vinification method of this cuvée go back to the origins of the House of BILLECART-SALMON and have been handed down for seven generations. The Brut Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine.
Appearance: Its pale and bright pink colour is adorned with warm glints of gold and its delicate slowly rising bubbles give it a persistent mousse.
Aroma: This cuvée unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits.
Palate: Its special method of vinification gives this cuvée a light, elegant flavour, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.
Serving: This rosé champagne is an ideal partner as an aperitif and can also accompany a dish of wild salmon or sushi. For dessert, it will add a sublime touch to red fruit flavours.
