The 1999 Brut Blanc de Blancs is another deep multi-dimensional wine from Billecart-Salmon. Here the fruit shows slightly more burnished tones along with greater textural richness and weight all while retaining surprising verve and cut. Roasted hazelnuts smoke and pastry crust add complexity on the suave finish. The vintage Blanc de Blancs is made from parcels in Avize Chouilly and Mesnil. This is Lot 265048 25010J. Disgorged May 14 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.This is a fine set of new releases from Billecart-Salmon. I admire these Champagnes for their trademark crystalline purity and exceptional sense of balance. --- AG

Firm with a light grain to the texture and a hint of brine accenting green pear lemon curd smoke and biscuit notes. Ends with a moderate mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2016.-A.N.

100% chardonnay. Pale with the barest hint of color. Restrained aromas with hints of citrus and brioche appearing underneath with aeration. Very attractive mature flavors gain richness and momentum as the taste experience... 100% chardonnay. Pale with the barest hint of color. Restrained aromas with hints of citrus and brioche appearing underneath with aeration. Very attractive mature flavors gain richness and momentum as the taste experience moves towards the backpalate. It's there that hints of brown sugar and caramel mix with baked apple and pie crust adding their presence to the rich finish. Drink soon to capture this cuvée's freshness.
