Billecart Salmon Blanc de Blancs Brut - 1.5 Litre Bottle

Product description

This remarkable bottle will make a perfect marriage with caviar or fine oysters, grilled fish, and seafood.

The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its gold colour. 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 is associated with the aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.

95 Points - James Suckling

Really attractive ripe and pure chardonnay sourced from the Cote de Blancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger. This has bright ripe peaches and nectarines in addition to mangoes and lemons and – not to mention some chalky background aromas. The palate's a riot of fleshy and flavoursome chardonnay fruit with a helping of stone fruits and another of green mango flavours and deeper-set citrus zest. Seamless balance flows to the finish. Drink now. Superb!

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Based on the 2014 vintage, supplemented by some 30% of reserve wines, Billecart's newly released NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru offers a classic bouquet of freshly baked bread, crisp orchard fruit, citrus oil and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit, racy acids and a pinpoint mousse, it's as bright and precise as ever.
