Elegant, classy and sophisticated. 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.
