In appearance, 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.

Aroma: 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.

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.

Vinification in stainless steel tanks. Use of 33% to 40% reserve wines. Ageing on lees: 4 to 5 years

One of the leading families of Champagne, this medium sized, high quality domain is one to be admired. Billecart-Salmon (Pronounced beel-kahr sahl-moh) have a fresh, clean and elegant style. They champion the use of the meunier grape which is often added to other cuvees without fanfare in other houses. The absolutely pristine wine making facilities located in Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ are overseen by multiple generations of the family as well as chef winemaker Francois Domi. The house purposely ferments at a lower temperature elongating the ferment to weeks and not days as can be standard in champagne, which helps capture the pristine nature of the fruit. Every step of the wine making process at the house is artful, right down to the precision of the dosage which is unique for every disgorgement conducted in batches. 

An exceptional fermentation with a chalky, mineral style which wonderfully accompanies Ossetra caviar or fine marinated sashimi. Service temperature: 8°C.
