Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut NV, 0.75L

Region: Champagne, Champagne, France
Varietal: Chardonnay
Classification: Grand Cru
Importer:
Score: 95JS
Review: "Really attractive ripe and pure chardonnay sourced from the Côte de Blancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger. This has bright ripe peaches and nectarines in addition to mangoes, lemons and – not to mention some background chalky aromas. The palate's a riot of fleshy and flavorsome chardonnay fruit with a helping of stone fruits and another of green mango flavors and deeper-set citrus zest. Seamless balance flows to the finish."

"Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs lends itself to a Champagne that is finely textured and impressively fruity and structured. The wine has a steely edge that suggests this bottling is young but that also has beautiful fruit and minerality." 94 Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

"Medium yellow-green color, silver highlights, and a fine, persistent mousse. Delicate floral undertones with white stone fruit nuances and notes of subtle mango, floral honey, meadow herbs, biscuit, apricot, and almonds. Creamy texture, juicy and elegant, with a delicate acidity; yellow apple and baked bread on a mineral-salty finish with very good length; a multi-faceted accompaniment to food." 94 Falstaff Magazin

"Exhibiting aromas of citrus oil, tart stone fruit, freshly baked bread and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and layered, its sweet core of fruit framed by racy acids and chalky structure." 93 William Kelley, Wine Advocate
