Last wine we tasted after our tour at Champagne Billecart-Salmon. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the domains history and all the wines. Bright golden yellow with tons of tiny bubbles. Thick nose with layers of honey, stone and white fruits, almonds and some lemon zest. Well rounded with high acidity (7.5/10) and medium plus to full bodied. Fresh, lively and zesty on the palate with layers of brioche, stone fruits, green apples and a touch of citrus. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2037. Made up of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from the same plot every vintage. Only 20% is vinified in oak and also aged for 13 years on the lees.

Toast on top of creme brûlée. Meyer lemon, flinty on nose. Super complex, layers, delish.

Great but personally, I enjoyed the 1999 better. Little more racy acidity in the 99

Really fine bead , lovely golden colour. Tons of apple, pear and other stone fruit flavours. Another spectacular wine from the 2002 vintage. Tasted at Billiecart Salamon during the '17 harvest.

02 at the Billecart Salmon cellars. A fantastic wine with bucket loads of flavour. Probably the best 02 vintage I've had including Krug which says either my taste is off or this is one hell of a wine!

Incredibly creamy medium body. 25/75 Pinot/Chardonnay. 4g of sugar only and 20% barrelled in oak. 13 years in Lees! Gerard calls it a meditation Champagne. Best to serve 12 deg and 15 mins in decanter necessary
