Description & Technical Information
-
The Champagne firm of Billecart-Salmon in Mareuil-sur-Äy was established in 1818 when Niçolas François Billecart married Elizabeth Salmon; it has remained independently controlled by the family ever since. Billecart-Salmon Vintage is dominated by the great Pinot Noir flavours which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs.

Weather: The 2009 vintage was a difficult year at first with a mild and rainy spring. The threat of mildew was high and storms in July further raised fears for the health of the grapes. However, a warm August of uninterrupted hot and dry weather was the catalyst for an idyllic harvest. Picking began on the 12th September in perfect conditions.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 73% Grands crus and Premiers crus | Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne
Grape Varieties: 40% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 27% Meunier
Ageing: 9 years on the lees
Dosage: 2 g/l
Fermentation: Vinification in stainless steel tanks and Partial malolactic fermentation
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: The yellow gold hue is adorned with delicate, soft golden glints. The nose has a fruit intensity with citrus notes and nuts. A taut and seductive tactile citrus zest palate with a defined structure.
