The Producer: Nicolas Francois Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon in the early 1800s, combining the two families' vineyards. In 1818 he founded Billecart-Salmon, now the oldest family-owned and operated house in Champagne.
The Why:This classic rosé has a pale pink salmon color and an elegant mousse. It has a delicate bouquet with notes of red berries and citrus. Wonderful as an aperitif, or with seafood and sushi, but also fantastic with dessert.
