This cuvée is a blend of two different years revealing the special quality of the Chardonnay. Its complexity, its great vinosity and the surprisingly fresh finish is particularly appreciated by a following of informed wine lovers. The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its golden colour. The creamy sensation of the bubbles combines with buttered brioche and mineral aromas. It has a persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness. A pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of white flesh fruits. Enjoy not only with caviar or fine oysters but also with grilled fish and seafood.

From five grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, this 100% Chardonnay is a great wine, with some toast and almond flavors showing good bottle age, along with freshness, finesse, ripe white fruits and a structured, lingering aftertaste.

Pale yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of citrus fruits, pear, honeysuckle and iodine, with a toasty overtone gaining strength with aeration. Dry and sharply focused, offering vibrant lime and bitter pear skin flavors and a touch of honey. Puts on weight with air and finishes with excellent clarity, power and mineral-driven persistence.

The NV Blanc de Blancs (from vineyards in the Cote des Blancs) emerges with firm, chalky notes that frame a highly individualistic expression of Chardonnay. The wine possesses striking depth and clarity, along with a graceful, elegant finish. This is another very strong effort from Billecart-Salmon. This is Lot: L 558 909 24609A. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.
