I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers, and sliced pears and peaches. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish. Mostly 2011 with some reserve wines. From 47% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and the rest pinot noir.
The NV Brut Reserve is a pretty, introspective wine laced with bright, citrus fruit, flowers and minerals. Medium in body, the wine reveals plenty of length and focus, with a crisp, refreshing finish. The Brut Reserve is a great introduction to the elegance of Billecart-Salmon.
Bright, with tangy acidity and a lively bead, this displays fruit-forward flavors of macerated apricot, pineapple and Granny Smith apple, with hints of ginger, biscuit and kumquat.
Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, orange zest and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering energetic redcurrant and blood orange flavors that show good concentration and a supple texture. A mineral nuance adds bite to the finish, with the floral note echoing.
Strong autolysis effect on the nose and then the wine – for this is wine - manages to be both mild, friendly and interesting. Broad fan of flavours and very superior in its depth. I have to be honest though and admit that it s charms passed most other tasters by.
