"The 2000 Brut Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is refined and elegant, with lovely depth and richness in its fragrant fruit. The 2000 Elisabeth Salmon is weightier than the NV Brut Rose yet everything is simply in the right place. This is a gorgeous, wonderfully expressive Champagne from Billercart-Salmon that is even more impressive than it was last year. The 2000 Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, of which 10% is still Pinot juice. Roughly 10% of the wine was aged in cask, and the wine was bottled with 9 grams of dosage. This is Lot: L598956 32009J. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022"

"Pale orange-pink. Fresh, mineral-accented aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and raspberry, with hints of dried rose and white pepper. Zesty, palate-staining red berry and blood orange flavors gain flesh and weight in the mid-palate, picking up a note of candied flowers. Dry and taut but packs a punch, finishing with outstanding clarity and stony persistence."
