Champagne Billecart-Salmon Overview

Billecart-Salmon's pure-Chardonnay non-vintage is a blend of four Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs. It is always an assemblage of two different vintages, striving to reveal the special quality of the Chardonnay grape.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Base Vintage (bottle): 2011
Base Vintage (magnum): 2008
Reserve Wine: 25%
Ageing: 5 years on the lees
Dosage: 7 g/l

Tasting Note: A golden colour with a fine stream of bubbles in the glass. Subtle aromas of dry fruits and almonds on the nose. On the palate: creamy white fleshy fruits and a balanced intensity of nuttiness. The finish is long and lasting with a continued brioche note.

“Mesnil, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly. No oak fermentation. Based on 2009 and a smaller proportion of reserve wines than the 45% in the Brut Réserve. RS 6 g/l. Feuille morte glass colour.
Bright, intense fruit on the nose. Broad, toasty and expansive. Very long. Elegant. Lots to chew on.”

“A delicate, fruity blanc de blancs with a straightforward floral-lemony-mineral character and stylish toasty edge. A classic mix from the celebrated Grand Cru villages of Chouilly, Cramant, Oger and Le Mesnil aged on the lees for five years with 35 percent reserve wines bringing even further richness. Beautifully creamy, energetic mousse and a fresh, long, fruity length.”

“Light and zesty with tobacco notes. Fresh and lively. Again, a slightly fast fade.”
