Delicious fruit intensity with elegant notes of lemon citrus and nuts (slivered almonds, lemon of Menton).
A sensory development stretched and nuanced around exquisite pastry notes (raw butter, jelly plum).A touching pleasure tense and charming (citrus zest, white pome fruit and shortbread Breton). The wine offers a lingering finish to the structure chiseled by the high qualitative potential of a great vintage.
Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart.
Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100% control of production.
Billecart-Salmon is renowned for the quality of its delicate rosé, while the Brut Réserve (a blend of three vintages) is a beautifully harmonious and balanced wine. All have the ability to age very well.
