Blended from fruit grown in several grand cru villages of the Côte des Blancs, with an emphasis on Avize, this is a beautiful green-gold color, a wine fragrant with scents of spring flowers. It balances full-bodied richness with racy acidity, both expansive and mineral-tight. It finishes on a scent that brings to mind oyster shells, and calls out for a dozen freshly shucked Belons.

Chalky aromas and dried white flowers with hints of lemon blossom and fresh pastry. The palate has a super fine feel to it. Dosage is nicely judged to coax out some depth in the citrusy, fresh-cut apple fruit. Finishes... Chalky aromas and dried white flowers with hints of lemon blossom and fresh pastry. The palate has a super fine feel to it. Dosage is nicely judged to coax out some depth in the citrusy, fresh-cut apple fruit. Finishes fresh, long and lively. Drink now. - Nick Stock

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 2015
A hint of salinity underscores the flavors of poached pear, marzipan, spiced plum and kumquat in this elegant blanc de blancs. Vibrant acidity drives this to a lasting, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020.

The balance of this wine is immediately striking. Everything is in its place: the crisp apples, tight acidity and the mineral texture are all just right. It’s a delicious, perfumed and fragrant wine that is ready to drink... The balance of this wine is immediately striking.

Billecart-Salmon

Champagne Billecart-Salmon is an independent and family-owned champagne house situated in the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Ay in the heart of Champagne. It was founded in 1818 after the marriage of Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon.

Since then, for almost 200 years, every member of the Billecart family has continued to stand by their oath of giving priority to quality and striving for excellence. Today, the 6th generation is represented by Francois and Antoine Roland-Billecart, who lead this independent house with the support of their father, Jean Roland-Billecart. The firm owns 74 acres of its own vines and purchases grapes from growers comprising another 346 acres. Ninety percent of the fruit for Billecart comes from 40 crus within a 20-mile radius of Epernay.

The Billecart portfolio includes the Brut Reserve, Brut Rose, Extra Brut, Demi-Sec, Brut Sous Bois, Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart, and the ultimate expression for the House, the vintage Le Clos Saint Hilaire, a blanc de noirs Champagne sourced from a tiny plot planted in 1964.

The winery employs sustainable viticulture practices, without the use of pesticides and herbicides, and the wines are aged in oak in Billecart's limestone cellars.
