    Winemaker's Notes:

    The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its gold color. A cuvée that will surprise you with its pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of fruits of white flesh. The creamy sensation of the bubble associated to aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.

    This great bottle will make a perfect marriage with caviar or fine oysters but also with grilled fish and seafood.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale, green-tinged yellow. A complex bouquet displays scents of green apple, pear, lemon zest, toasty lees and honeysuckle. Packs a solid punch but conveys a weightless quality, offering sappy orchard fruit and citrus flavors along with suave mineral and floral qualities. The toasty note returns on the long, impressively incisive finish.

    Lightly toasty and creamy in texture, yet well-cut and vibrant throughout, this shows a minerally base note underscoring the flavors of poached pear, candied lemon zest, toasted brioche and pickled ginger. Drink now through 2020.

    I like this one for its delicate personality. Bright and zippy from beginning to end, the non vintage Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs exhibits chalk, mineral and dried citrus in the flavors; long, crisp finish. A great oyster wine!

    A surprisingly soft wine, showing as much richness as minerality. The wine has weight, some yeasty character with peach and citrus. It finishes with a round, full and creamy character.
