"The currently available Brut Rose is based on the '09 vintage, with significant contributions from '08 and '07; 43 is chardonnay, 57 pinot noir and pinot meunier, with a light dosage of 7-8 g/l. It has a perfumed, red-fruits bouquet and a palate full of richness and flavour, balanced by notes of chalk and mineral ex the acidity. I cannot remember ever having a glass of Billecart rose that disappointed me."

"I also had the pleasure to taste the new release of the Billecart-Salmon Brut Ros NV at the Crush tasting in December here in New York, and then subsequently at a Billecart tasting in February. This wine is a blend of fifty percent chardonnay, thirty percent pinot noir and twenty percent pinot meunier and was aged for fully four years on the fine lees prior to disgorgement and preparation for release. Unlike the houses straight non-vintage Brut bottling, some of the base wines for the Brut Ros go through malo. The bouquet on the current release is outstanding, wafting from the glass in a mlange of cherries, orange peel, woodsmoke, warm bread and a lovely base of complex minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very refined on the attack, with a lovely core, frothy mousse, bright acids and outstanding focus, length and grip on the very elegant and complete finish. Fine, fine juice."

Wine Spectator 92
"Bright and elegant, this offers appealing flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry and orange peel that show hints of toasted raisin bread, anise and sweet smoke. Offers a beautiful texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2015."

Wine Enthusiast 92
"A dry ros, 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."

International Wine Cellar 92
"Light orange. Tangerine, pear and flowers on the nose, which is complicated by a note of fennel. Broad and sappy but dry, with lively orange and strawberry flavors and a subtle note of spice cake. Weightier on the finish, which features an exotic note of spicy herbs. This Champagnes delicate touch will make it work well with simple seafood dishes or even sashimi."

"Persistent mousse, with fine bubbles rising slowly. Pale salmon pink in color, with a shade of gold. A nose of red fruits and fresh pear. Delicate fruit on the palate, elegant, and showing great finesse." ~ Winery notes
