These have been very tough to get lately. There wasn't much to go around, but we took everything we could! We are getting large and small formats next week, along with some vintage bubbly as well. In the mean time, grab a bottle or two of the 750ml.
Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve...$59.99/750mlThe Brut Réserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. It is made up of a blend of 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from three different years and sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region.--winery notes
Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with nine grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Réserve contains fully 55% reserve wines and is showing very well, offering up complex aromas of warm bread, crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and charming but lively, with an elegantly textural attack, a fleshy core of fruit and lively balancing acids. Rated 90/100 Wine Advocate
A well-knit Champagne with a citrusy, orange peel overtone and a lithe backbone of acidity enlivening flavors of cherry and apricot fruit, grated ginger, pastry and minerally saline. Creamy finish. Drink now through 2023. Rated 91/100 Wine Spectator
Billecart Salmon Brut Rose...$97.99/750mlThe Brut Rosé is a fresh and elegant Rosé Champagne, blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine. Radiant color with graceful effervescence, a persistent mousse, and fine bubbles rising slowly in the glass. Subtle and fine aromas leading to an expressive red berry flavor with citrus zest. Creamy and smooth on the palate, evolving to strawberries notes and a raspberry finish. Light, balanced and precise.
A lively rosé Champagne with a pleasing, citrusy juiciness to the flavors of steeped raspberry, white peach and blanched almond. A subtle thread of chalky minerality winds through the finish. Drink now through 2023. Rated 92/100 Wine Spectator
The palest of rosés, this is an elegant, structured wine. Its dryness is balanced by the fine apple and red-currant fruits and the strong sense of minerality. Fragrant and lightly structured, this fine bottling is ready to drink. Rated 92/100 Wine Enthusiast
