Champagne Billecart Salmon NV Brut Reserve
Billecart-Salmon's Brut Réserve is made from a classic Champagne blend of 40% Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. One of Champagne's most elegant wines known for its racy style and crystalline purity. Always with 50-60% reserve wine to lend the wine maturity and complexity and with 30 months on the lees fr generosity on the palate.
Champagne Billecart-Salmon dates back to 1818. It is a small Champagne house with a focus on producing harmonious Champagnes from around 300 hectares of vines. The greatest claim to fame of Billecart is the 'Champagne of the Millennium' tasting which took place in 1999. A panel of expert tasters organised by writer and established Champagne guru Richard Jurlin voted Billecart's 1959 the overall winner. Not just that, their 1961 came 2nd.
We are pleased to introduce these wines, and we have started with a small range which comprises their Brut Reserve, Rosé and vintage 2008 Extra Brut
