Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne
Winemaker Notes: The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its gold color. A cuvée that will surprise you with its pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of fruits of white flesh. The creamy sensation of the bubble associated to aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness. This great bottle will make a perfect marriage with caviar or fine oysters but also with grilled fish and seafood.
Tasting Panel - "The prismatic nose on this stately beauty, aged on the lees for four to five years, emits by turn notes of lemon- lime, herbed shortbread, hazelnut skin, green pear, and a hint of green olive against a backdrop of chalky minerality, which also provides the framework for brushstrokes of yel- low plum, lime leaf, pomelo, young apricot, and blanched almond on the palate. The texture is supple, the acidity oh-so-pretty, and the finish salt-flecked."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Based on the 2015 vintage and dominated this year by Mesnil sur Oger, Billecart's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru was disgorged in July 2021 with seven grams per liter dosage. Exhibiting aromas of citrus oil, tart stone fruit, freshly baked bread and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and layered, its sweet core of fruit framed by racy acids and chalky structure."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The current release of the NV Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut is based on the 2015 vintage and pours a pale straw color. The nose is clean and pure, with a sun-kissed ripeness, and reveals fresh aromatics of candied green apple, lime, and bread dough. The mousse is elegant, and the wine is ripe, with a rounded feel, and fresh with ripe green apple, lemon-lime, and chalk, followed by a balanced and fairly long finish. It is straightforward, approachable, and classic. Best after 2022."
