Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThis is sourced from the five grand cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Oger, and is a blend of two years. 33-40 percent reserve wines, 4-5 years on lees, and a dosage of 8 g/l provides a very cushioned base to support the layers of shortbread, lemon sherbet, green apple, pear, vanilla wafer, white blossom, rafted by a fine, pixellated acidity that finishes firmly and with ample chalkiness. In 1818, Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, and founded Maison Billcart-Salmon, in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, where they were based.Tasted: 04 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 133.00 BCLS Producer: Champagne Billecart-SalmonDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
