Mirrors on the ceiling, pink champagne on ice… no you don’t have to check into the Hotel California to enjoy one of life’s most romantic luxuries! Salmon Meunier Brut Rosé Champagne is a delight for all the senses: from its gorgeous hue, aromas of fresh strawberries, bright acidity, and snap-crackle-pop of fizzing bubbles. But you don’t have to save this wine for special occasions- just one sip can make everyday sparkle and brighten up the moment.

For three generations the Salmon family has specialized in the rare and elusive Pinot Meunier grape in the hamlet of Chaumuzy in Champagne. In fact, the twenty acres that Alexandre Salmon farms sustainably are planted 85% to Pinot Meunier. Normally used in small quantities to lend softness and fruity aromatics to champagne, the Salmon family has chosen to give Pinot Meunier the full limelight it deserves. Apart from their love of Pinot Meunier, the entire family is passionate about hot air ballooning, hence the label artwork, and can often be found aloft surveying their little corner of this beautiful region.

Hand-picked and gently pressed, the vivid fuchsia color is the result of a gentle, short maceration on the skins of the Pinot Meunier. Two years of aging on fine lees results in aromas of pound cake, raspberries, red currants, lemon, and coriander, blended with perfumes of lime blossom, fresh brioche, and violet. The approach on the palate is supple and fresh, with a smooth and creamy effervescence. Pop a cork today to elicit all sorts of giddiness!
