Blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay.
With soft, shimmering reflections and a sustained pink hue, this seductive blend has a radiant brilliance. There is a refreshing sensorial expression of citrus peel and red berry jelly. With the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic generosity (antique roses, cherries and white peaches). Harmonious maturing of flavours (mandarine, blood orange and Reinette apple tart). An ample and pure character, in the mouth unveiling a chalky edge and persistent finish of lightly candied citron. Ideal when paired with beautiful creamy poultry, in particular poulet de Bresse or Breton langoustines royales.
Aromas of red berries, orange rind, dried flowers, warm brioche and spices introduce the 2007 Brut Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth, one of the highlights of this tasting chez Billecart. It’s full-bodied, broad and vinous, with an enveloping attack and a bright underlying spice of acidity, revealing plenty of chalky dry extract and concentration, concluding with a long and precise finish. Despite the style of the vintage and the fact that malolactic fermentation was largely blocked, this is quite a textural, powerful wine. Wine Advocate – 97
