WBW # 9: Pour us more pink please!


We’re straying a bit from the pink “rosé” theme, but thinking pink, pink bubbles popped up in our heads. Or we just needed an excuse to pop open a fine bottle of rosé champagne. Off we went and bought ourselves a bottle of Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne. This bottle retails for about 50 EUR, but hey, we had the start off our food-blog with a bang. Or a loud *pop* in our case.

The bottle in question was purchased at our favourite wine-store in Amsterdam: “De Gouden Ton” (which translates as The Golden Barrel). This shop is run by a friendly staff of amazing wine-freaks, always ready with great advice and packed with know-how. The shop is well stocked and we always end up buying loads more than we came for. The Gouden Ton particularly specializes in finding the more artisan wine producers: if you want to make an amazing wine discovery off the beaten path, this is the place to be! So, this is enough of our lyrical praising of De Gouden Ton, back to our pink-tasting business.

The colour of this champagne is a lovely pale peachy pink, or dare we say salmon-pink? Think Granny’s Boudoir, definitely not hot neon pink. The bubbles are very delicate and fine, indicating that this champagne is the real deal. No fierce bubbles resembling those found in a jacuzzi but fine, feminine bubbles that titillate your tongue. Just by sight we instantly fell in love.



The nose is very delicate: not too floral. Things coming to our minds were: fresh yeasty bread hot from the oven, fruit falling from trees on a warm autumn day. As we take our first sip, the tickling bubbles hit our mouths immediately. The fine fizz freshens the mouth, followed by a crisp and clean sensation. As a finale we are left with a slight sweet, fruity note.

To conclude this tasting: we strongly recommend drinking this champagne on a daily basis to ensure happiness for the rest of your life. This was our humble opinion after drinking a whole bottle of this stuff in less than an hour. More realistically, this advice does seem a tad exaggerated and to be honest a bit expensive. So, drink this champagne now and then as a festive aperitif or even with a light dish of fish: salmon perhaps? ;)

Evocative post! Great... now you've made me thirsty, but the trip to De Gouden Ton from here adds more to the price than I can justify on impulse. Now what?!
