BILLECART SALMON 02 BRUT ROSE ELIZABETH SALMON

JOHN GILMAN 96 POINTS-"The 2002 Billecart-Salmon “Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon” Brut Rosé is an absolutely brilliant wine. The cépages here in 2002 is a fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, with eight percent of the pinot being comprised of still red wine. The dosage is again only five grams per liter. This is a breathtakingly beautiful bottle of Brut Rosé, soaring from the glass in a blend of blood orange, white cherries, wheat toast, exotic spices redolent of both cumin and saffron, a gorgeously complex base of soil and a gentle topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very pure on the attack, with perfect focus and balance, a great core, stunning elegance and poise, refined mousse and a very long, zesty and utterly seamless finish. As hard as it will be to resist this wine, I would try to give it at least a couple more years’ worth of bottle age to allow its secondary layers of complexity to more fully emerge. Absolutely stellar juice."
Created in 1988 as a tribute to the co-founder Elisabeth Salmon, this cuvée distinguishes itself through its intensity of beautiful and elegant flavors. This great, rare and sought after wine, subtly offers the signature of our top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs that have been carefully mastered from an exceptional harvest.
