Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne 2002

$225

Supremely elegant and aristocratic in bearing, the 2002 Rose Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is simply exquisite. All the elements are beautifully nuanced. Above all else, the Cuvee Elisabeth is a Champagne of finesse, even in 2002. Crushed rose petals, cinnamon and spice gradually open up in the glass, but the 2002 is slow to reveal all of its charms. Readers lucky enough to own the 2002 can look forward to another 20 years or so of fine drinking. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

A nice contrast to the Taittinger. This is also about structure but this one is giving you a much greater insight into what it has to offer. Consistent notes similar to the last bottle I posted a few weeks back.

A kaleidoscope of aromas and flavor. On the nose cherries and raspberries. A big boom as it enters the mouth and floods the senses . Lots of red burgundy flavors with excellent acidity. Travels through ones mouth like a wave on the North Shore of Hawaii.

Amplifying the fruits, acicdity and the FRESHNESS of the regular Billecarrt Rose yet did not lost the elegant and fineness of what a Billecart Rose suppose to be... Love the 1996 vintage and hopefully this will develop gracefully with time in the bottle. #Double Debourbage

Extremely developed, I really don't thing Rosé is ever meant to be aged for too long, indicative of the roundness of the vintage.
