Description

The sophistication and aromatic finesse of a vintage champagne by Billecart-Salmon

The estate

Since its creation in 1818 by the married couple, Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, having preserved all of its know-how and demand for high-quality cuvées for 7 generations.

The vineyard

The Billecart-Salmon vineyard covers 100 hectares from Côte des Blancs to the Reims mountain. The vines are cultivated and cared for in a traditional manner so that the wine resembles real fruit and to reflect the quality of its terroir.

The wine

The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart was created in 1964 as a homage to the founder of this Champagne House.

This cuvée is the result of a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and partial vinification in oak barrels. The richness of the fruit is blended wonderfully, with an aromatic elegance.

Winemaking and ageing

20% of the product is vinified in oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation. Ageing on lees in the estate’s cellars for 10 years. Dosage is 4g/litre.

Blend

The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 2002 is made from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir from the Premier and Grand Crus from the Reims Mountain and the Marne Valley, as well as 40% Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs.

Tasting

Colour

The wine is a bright and beautiful golden yellow. Defined bubbles.

Nose

The nose is rich and subtle with fragrances of malt, white peach, nectarine and mirabelle plum alongside complex aromas of mandarin zest.

Palate

The palate is balanced, with noble, resinous flavours such as spruce and Dutch gin. This wine is splendidly full-bodied.

Food and wine pairings

A beautiful roasted Bresse chicken or a delicious milk-fed veal chop are refined pairings for this Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 2002.

Serving temperature

For optimal tasting, serve at 11-12°C.
