      Supremely elegant and aristocratic in bearing, the 2002 Rosé Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon is simply exquisite. All the elements are beautifully nuanced. Above all else, the Cuvée Elisabeth is a Champagne of finesse, even in 2002. Crushed rose petals, cinnamon and spice gradually open up in the glass, but the 2002 is slow to reveal all of its charms. Readers lucky enough to own the 2002 can look forward to another 20 years or so of fine drinking.

  • Billecart-Salmon was established in 1818 by Nicolas-Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon in the town of Mareuil-sur-Ay. It is one of the few Champagne houses still owned by the original family. The house is renowned for its non-vintage rose, but also makes vintage champagnes and a Brut Reserve (a blend of three vintages). Billecart-Salmon farms 30 hectares of its own fruit and purchases grapes from an additional 140 hectares, mostly from the area surrounding Epernay. Production methods are meticulous, including the use of their own cultured yeast and Grand Cru wines are fermented in small, traditional Burgundy casks. The bottles are aged in deep chalky cellars where the constantly cool temperature allows for the production of small, fine bubbles.
