A rich and subtle Champagne

Billecart-Salmon produces the Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart that was created in 1964 as a tribute to the founder of the House. This fantastic vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

At the tasting, the Nicolas Billecart Cuvée 2002 from the Billecart-Salmon Maison offers a sparkling golden yellow colour with golden highlights and fine bubbles. The nose is rich and subtle with malt, white peach, nectarine and plum aromas, along with complex tangerine zest notes. The palate is balanced and reveals refined resinous flavours like spruce or Houlle gin. This champagne has a splendid vinosity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2002 Brut Cuvée Nicolas François was disgorged in January 2015 with four grams per liter dosage, and it's showing superbly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet that mingles confit citrus, peach and dried papaya with nuances of iodine, brioche and honeycomb. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a rich and layered core that's underpinned by serious structure and tension, concluding with a long and precise finish. This is one of the finest wines Billecart has released in the last decade, and it is well worth seeking out.
