BRUT RESERVE CHAMPAGNE, BILLECART-SALMON, CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE NV
Family-run Champagne house. First established in 1818, the house is now run by the 7th generation of the family.
The Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve NV is a blend of 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir.
The most recent bottling contains around 40% of fruit from the 2015 harvest with the remainder topped up with reserve wines.
The result is a light and delicately fruit-filled cuvée with aromatic and spicy notes from the Pinot Meunier. Further aromas include redcurrant, chalky notes and hints of ripe pears.
The palate is round, elegant and finessed, leading to an intense, persistent, well-structured and saline finish.
A consistent and highly regarded non vintage, Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve has notes of pear, baked apples, citrus and biscuits.
