Billecart-Salmon's rare and highly sought after "Elisabeth" Brut Rosé, a blend of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, is made only in exceptional vintages, called millésimes. It was created in 1988 as a tribute to co-founder Elisabeth Salmon.
50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne; 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs.
Less than 10% of the Pinot Noir is vinified as a red wine. The grapes for the red wine come from the “Valofroy” vineyard of old vines, located on the slopes of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and which benefit from a south facing exposure. Partial malolactic fermentation, ageing on lees for 10 years.
