Billecart-Salmon Extra Brut in Gift Box
Pale and gold intensity enhanced by pure brightness. The mousse is energetic with an abundant ultra fine bubble. Complex and seductive aromas of dried fruits and brioche combined with floral notes. This is further enhanced by the subtle charm of lemon verbena. A precise, elegant and aromatic freshness accentuated by the expression of the quality of the composition.
Charming biscuity flavour and white fruits with a full and harmonious minerality resulting in a sensational balanced finish.
A new definition of a refined style. A surprising association with the finest dishes - veal carpaccio, scallops a la plancha and marinated raw fish with citrus fruits.
Serve at 10-11°.
Billecart-Salmon, a medium-size Champagne House in Mareuil-sur-Ay, was founded in 1818 by the original owners Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon who combined their names on marriage to create the brand. It is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to remain family owned.
Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100% control of production.
Billecart-Salmon is renowned for the quality of its delicate Rose, whilst the Brut Reserve (a blend of three vintages) is a beautifully harmonious and balanced wine. All have the ability to age very well.
The Cuvee Nicolas-Francois Billecart 1959 won the title in the Champagne of the Millennium 1999, out of 150 of the finest 20th Century champagnes. A magnum of the winning champagne later sold for £3,300.
