Billecart-Salmon - Vintage

Experience the exquisite taste of Billecart-Salmon Vintage champagne, a product of the renowned Billecart-Salmon champagne house. This champagne is made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes, carefully selected from the best vineyards in the Champagne region of France.

The Billecart-Salmon Vintage champagne has a delicate and complex taste profile, with notes of citrus, white flowers, and brioche. The bubbles are fine and persistent, creating a creamy texture on the palate. This champagne is perfect for special occasions, celebrations, or as an aperitif.

The Billecart-Salmon champagne house has a rich history dating back to 1818, when it was founded by Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon. The house has remained family-owned and operated for seven generations, and is known for its commitment to quality and tradition.

Enjoy a glass of Billecart-Salmon Vintage champagne with a seafood platter, grilled fish, or creamy cheeses. This champagne is also perfect for toasting to a special moment or simply enjoying with friends and family.

Disgorged with two grams per liter dosage, Billecart-Salmon's 2009 Extra Brut Vintage is more giving and demonstrative than its 2008 counterpart, offering up inviting aromas of crisp stone fruit, yellow apple, brioche, honeycomb and warm pastry. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a pillowy mousse and a generous core of fruit girdled by bright acids, it's seamless and complete. Indeed, such is its charm and persistence that I tend to prefer it, at least for now, to the 2008.
Disgorged with four grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Extra Brut Vintage hasn't appreciably evolved since I last tasted it. Offering up pretty aromas of honeycomb, crisp green apple, white flowers and fresh pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, tensile and incisive, with a tightly wound core, racy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. I wouldn't open bottles from my own cellar for another five years, as this is evolving at a glacial pace.

In 1668, Dom Pérignon is said to have discovered how to make sparkling wine; today his technique is used the world over, although Champagne continues to make some of the finest. France’s most northerly wine region, Champagne is now home to 15,000 growers and 290 ‘houses’. A blend of grape varieties is usually required: white Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance, and two reds – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – to provide body and backbone.
