Description

An exceptional champagne showcasing the finesse of the Chardonnay variety

The producer

Since its creation in 1818 by the spouses Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, preserving all of its know-how and the high quality of its vintages for 7 generations.

The vineyard

The Billecart-Salmon vineyard stretches from the Côte des Blancs to the Montagne de Reims and covers almost 100 hectares. The vines are cultivated and cared for in the traditional manner in order to get as close to the authentic fruit as possible and to reflect the quality of the Champagne region’s terroir.

The wine

The aromatic depth of this Grand Cru reflects the exceptional terroir of the Côte des Blancs. The typicality of this chalky soil is expressed during the tasting, through a perfect marriage between power, freshness and minerality.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is aged on its lees for 4 to 5 years in the estate's cellars. The dosage is 8g/L

The blend

100% Chardonnay, this Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru by Billecart-Salmon will enchant you with its finesse and elegance.

Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne by Billecart-Salmon: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A fine foam and a delicate effervescence. Golden hues.

Nose

The nose is delicious, with delicate aromas of dried fruit (almond, hazelnut) and white fleshy fruit.

Palate

The controlled complexity of the palate brilliantly brings out the wide range of aromas of the Chardonnay variety. A creamy attack with brioche notes is mixed with a beautiful tension. The balance is perfect between power and subtle mineral notes. The finish, marked by freshness, is persistent and elegant.

Food and wine pairing

The gourmet characteristics of this Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne by Billecart-Salmon will go perfectly with grilled fish, caviar or seafood.

Serving

For an optimal tasting, serve at 8°C.
