This is at the lighter end of the spectrum when it comes to rosé due to the small addition of red wine. Billecart-Salmon have been advocates for rosé and have defined this genre of champagne which leans towards the savoury side.

There are aromas of pink grapefruit, citrus and delicate rosehip. The palate is light, playful with a creamy texture. If you haven't had this before, enjoy it with a good friend or someone you love.

30% Pinot Meunier from Vallée de la Marne, 40% Chardonnay from Région de Vitry and Côte des Blancs. 30% Pinot Noir from Vallée de la Marne (Aÿ, Mareuil, Ambonnay) and Montagne de Reims (Rilly, Verzenay, Verzy), with 7% of Pinot Noir from Mareuil vinified as a red wine.

To maintain freshness, the houses disgorges as they go and adjusts the dosage for every batch. Dosage 9 g/L.

One of the leading families of Champagne, this medium sized, high quality domain is to be admired. Billecart-Salmon (pronounced beel-kahr sahl-moh) have a fresh, clean and elegant style. They champion the use of the meunier grape, which is often a added to other cuvees without fanfare in other houses. The absolutely pristine wine making facilities located in Mareuil-Sur-Ay are overseen by multiple generations of the family, as well as Chief Winemaker Francois Domi. The house purposely ferments at a lower temperature, lengthening the ferment to weeks and not days as can be standard in champagne, which helps capture the pristine nature of the fruit. Every step of the win making process at the house is artful, right down to the precision of the dosage, which is unique for every disgorgement conducted in batches.
