Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve Champagne Blend NV

$54.99

(From very old vines that yielded just 35 hectoliters per hectare): Very pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon, crushed rock, anise and white pepper. Tactile and brisk on the palate, boasting lovely inner-mouth energy and lift to the flavors of lemon, ginger and quinine. The wine's restrained sweetness perfectly buffered by firm minerality. Vibrant, sharply delineated wine with excellent spicy, perfumed length. (Note that Billaud-Simon will no longer offer a Mont de Milieu Vieille Vigne cuve.)-- Stephen Tanzer: 91/93

Billecart is always something special, tried a new batch. Pale lemon yellow, fine bubbles, nice mousse with aromas of fresh fruit and citrus scents. On the palate flavors of ripe stone fruits with chalky mineral tones and noted presence of Pinot Noir with slight berry notes. The long finish was well balanced showing a smoky mineral character. This N.V. is blended using 50% of its reserve wine. Very Nice, Enjoy!!

Delicious after our first hot day. Need to buy more half bottles of their n/v Blanc. Not sure where Delectable’s source for this cuvée is at $46. I paid just under $30 for a 375ml. Beautiful mouthfeel/mousse. Sour lemons w/ hints of meringue, lime zest- candy, kiwi, pear, white peach/nectarine, understated notes of pineapple juice, beautiful, soft grey volcanics, edgy, soft chalkiness, yeast, soft, melted, salted caramel, white spice, sea spray, cream, spring flowers, jasmine, some yellow & white lilies excellent soft acidity with a smartly polished & well balanced finish lasting minutes.

Billcart-Salmon’s NV Rosé is a benchmark as far as NV Rosé is concerned. The Brut Reserve, while a fine enough Champagne, is less memorable. Delicate best describes it. Tiny bubbles that dissipate quickly. The nose is fairy muted. Granny Smith and rhubarb on the palate. The finish is short. No disgorgement data.
