Billecart-Salmon Rosé is one of Champagne's greatest treasures. Not an obvious, overt style, but instead it is crystal pure, and elegant with a just hint of colour. The wine is made from 40% Chardonnay, 30% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir and is aged for 36 months on its lees. The palate is zesty with citrus notes of pink grapefruit and a creaminess to the palate

Champagne

At Noble Grape we source our Champagnes like any of our wines - we seek out quality, value, and authenticity of style. We favour Growers Champagnes, but we are not strict about that. We do stock a few of the big names, but those that are family owned and fit our ethos of quality over branding and lifestyle.

The highlights from our range include Pierre Gimonnet which is a grower based in Cuis in the Cotes de Blancs, where Chardonnay is king. Gimonnet makes a style of wine that is as close to 'dry' as possible for a Brut, with elegance and purity. René Geoffroy is another grower we favour whose vineyards in Cumieres tend to prefer Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Elsewhere, we work with Beaumont de Crayeres, a leading co-operative, and Billecart Salmon whose wines we admire very much for their raciness and body.

The Producer

Champagne Billecart Salmon

Champagne Billecart-Salmon

Champagne Billecart-Salmon dates back to 1818. It is a small Champagne house with a focus on producing harmonious Champagnes from around 300 hectares of vines. The greatest claim to fame of Billecart is the 'Champagne of the Millennium' tasting which took place in 1999. A panel of expert tasters organised by writer and established Champagne guru Richard Jurlin voted Billecart's 1959 the overall winner. Not just that, their 1961 came 2nd.
