The Brut Rose is a romantic champagne with delicate, slowly rising bubbles that gives it a persistent mousse. Pale and bright pink color adorned with warm glints of gold. Unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine red-fruit notes and citrus-fruit zest. A light, elegant flavor followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry. 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 flavors.

20% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. When Nicolas Francois Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon in the early 1800s, the two families' long-held vineyards were married as well. This led to Nicolas' decision to leave his law practice and establish the Billecart-Salmon house in 1818, which now stands as the oldest continuously family-owned and operated house in Champagne. Billecart-Salmon harvests early for more elegant and delicate champagnes, selecting grapes with a strong-acid structure instead of relying on the alcohol as a preservative. Another defining characteristic is their practice of double-cold settling which they began in 1952. This involves a primary cold settling of the pressed juice for a period of 12 hours. The juice is then racked into clean tanks where it is chilled down to 35.6 degrees F for another 48 hours. This second and much colder settling eliminates any wild yeasts and additional heavy elements without the use of enzymes, filtering, or a centrifuge.
