|Varietal||Chardonnay-Pinot Noir Blend|
Appearance: This cuvÃ©e, with reflections of straw yellow, stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse.
The tiny mousse tells a lot about the quality of this impressive Champagne. It is quite full in style, with flavors of white currants and a rich, but still bone-dry aftertaste. It is a perfect food Champagne, with structure and a good tension between richness and elegance.
Based on the 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.
A dry, chalky Champagne, with hints of biscuit, lemon curd and white peach. Medium-bodied, with a fresh finish. Drink now. ?AN —Alison Napjus,
