Name Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne NV (ID# 1143)
Varietal Blend
Region France: Champagne
Notes "This has an attractive nose of roasted hazelnuts, almond croissants, raspberries, baked apples and custard. Lovely depth and flavor concentration here with a medium body, soft bubbles and salty elements on a fresh finish. 2018 base with 55% reserve wine. 41% meunier, 30% chardonnay and 29% pinot noir." (James Suckling) "Firm and minerally, this well-knit Champagne layers flavors of grainy pear, preserved lemon, toast point and crystallized honey on a creamy mousse. Reveals hints of smoke and saline on the finish." (Wine Spectator)
