Description & Technical Information
-
Billecart-Salmon Rendez-vous No.1 is the latest addition to the Billecart-Salmon range, a 100% Meunier blend, rarely seen in Champagne. Created from the historic terroirs of Leuvrigny, Festigny and Venteuil in the Marne Valley, where the Pinot Meunier varietal gives wine from this region its distinctive identity. Leuvrigny and Festigny vineyards are on the left bank of the Marne Valley, exposed to the east and south, on limestone subsoil. Venteuil vineyards are on the right bank of the Marne Valley, exposed to the south, on loamy subsoil. No.1 is based on 2014.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Villages of Leuvrigny, Festigny and Venteuil in the Marne Valley
Grape Varieties: 100% Menuier
Ageing: 4.5 years on the lees
Base Wine: 2014
Reserve wines: 33%
Disgorged: December 2019
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2028

Tasting Note: A golden yellow hue with lime and violet aromas on the nose, juicy citrus is present and onto the palate, white cherry, pear and redcurrant. The Meunier is giving a great texture and with 4 years on lees the mid palate is rounded and balancing the acidity. Has a great finish with hints of bright citrus fruits and a hint of pepper and dash of salinity. Love the balance and energy.
