Getting married this weekend and thought I’d kick off the weekend with a classic. Billecart Salmon Rose NV. Lovely nose of strawberries and red fruit. Yeast and gentle vanilla creaminess as well. Palate is vibrant and energetic with beautiful acidity and a long slightly bitter (in the best way) finish. Paired beautifully with some bacon cheeseburgers

Congrats on your wedding!

I've been heavily into rose de saignee as of late. That's a champagne rose that's truly different
