Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru NV
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 the most informed wine lovers.
The wine shows an ultra-delicate effervescence which translates into an abundance of elegant bubbles. It is sparkling and elegant with a luminous yellow gold hue with glints of green.
On the nose a very pure and mineral intensity with an uncommon typicity, releasing notes of brioche, fresh butter and lemony citrus fruits. A distinguished and subtle realm that delicately evolves with a remarkable finesse.
On the palate a creamy sensation with a chalky and meringue texture, associated with nuances of fresh almonds and citron zest. A smoothness of great class which is chiselled and persistent. An exceptional fermentation with a chalky, mineral style which wonderfully accompanies Ossetra caviar or fine marinated sashimi.
