Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now.
Wine Spectator 92 points - The NV Brut Rose is a pretty, gracious wine. Freshly cut roses, red berries and spices take shape nicely in the glass as the wine shows off its understated, timeless personality. Billecart-Salmon?s NV Brut Rose is a reliably tasty wine. This is Lot L26712406690A. Disgorged September 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
Steve Tanzer 92 points - A coiled spring of a Champagne, with its berry and bread dough notes locked up in the structure. This needs time or food to mellow and reveal its charms. Good length, with a candied cherry aftertaste. Best from 2006 through 2009
DOMAINE BILLECART-SALMON NV BILLECART-SALMON BRUT ROSE
"A dry rosé, freshly tasting of red currant fruits, laced with beautifully refreshing acidity. The wine has some weight, but it has more of an elegant, dancing lightness." Wine Enthusiast 94 points
