- Cellar Drink Now - 5 years (2017-2022)
- ABV 12%
- Closure: Diam Cork
RETASTED: 20/01/2017: Good frothy mousse with a pale straw, golden edged base colour and a very fine profuse bead. Bready yeast lees aromas rise from the glass with ensuing toast, cashew and light citrus notes. Possessing a toasty richness and creamy textured mid palate, flavours of baked bread, yeast lees and oily toast are to the fore with nuances of almond and citrus present on the crisp dry finish. Good length with a long conclusion of citrus, baked bread, yeast lees and subtly roasted almonds.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
RETASTED: 30/09/2010: The wines pours well displaying a superb white creamy mousse with good hold. Bright straw, pale gold base colour with a very fine and persistent bead. The nose displays aromas of yeast lees, toast, biscuit and citrus with some cashew overtones showing good complexity. Very yeasty palate flavours are followed by some toast, cashew, baked bread and biscuit possessing a creamy texture and a clean crisp dry finish. Fine acid backbone. Long aftertaste of yeast lees, toast and cashew. A superb non vintage cuvee from Billecart.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2010-2014).
RETASTED: 27/10/2005: This new shipment of Billecart has slightly higher acidity than previous shipments, making it an ideal aperitif style. The wine opens with a creamy mousse followed by very fine, persistent bead. The nose reveals a biscuit top note followed by citrus, cashew and yeast lees. Creamy palate texture, with fine acid backbone. Flavours of grapefruit are followed by cashew and yeast lees. The Chardonnay component is to the forefront. Very long aftertaste of grapefruit, yeast lees and biscuit with the acidity persisting.
Cellar 2-3 years (2007-2008)
RETASTED: 25/08/2003: Billecart Salmon is our favorite French Champagne. Every year we look for a product that gives better value for money, without sacrificing any of the qualities we love in Billecart. They say you get bored drinking the same bubbles all the time, but not so with Billecart, there's just no better bubbles for your buck! The wine is made from a blend of 41% Pinot Meunier, 34% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay and displays a finesse and persistence that makes it very difficult to surpass, at the price. Krug Grand Cuvee is better for sure, but then at $215 it's not exactly affordable on a frequent basis. Magnificent, sophisticated nose, with distinct yeast autolysis notes followed by nuances of grapefruit and biscuit. The palate structure displays that rare juxtaposition, between elegance and force. Mouthfilling flavour of biscuit, cashews and yeast lees fill the palate and linger long into the aftertaste. Creamy texture. Perfect balance between fruit and acidity. Enjoy as often as you can!
First Tasted:- December 2002:
Although Billecart Salmon is not a big name Marque, like Moet & Chandon or Bollinger, it’s easy to see why it remains so highly prized by lovers of fine Champagne. Made from a blend of 41% Pinot Meunier, 34% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, the wine has a degree of finesse and sophistication that is difficult to surpass. The nose has that very special French Champagne sniff, of biscuit and yeast autolysis, followed by a hint of grapefruit. The palate demonstrates a superb counterpoint of elegance and force, with flavours of biscuit, cashew and lees filling the palate. Superb creamy texture, a wonderful drink to celebrate, anything, and everything. INDULGE!
