Champagne Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut : Fresh & Complex !
Score : 92/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED and highlighted as personal recommendation at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
100% Chardonnay grapes from 4 Grands Crus in the Cotes de Blancs area of the Champagne region: Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, and Mesnil-sur-Oger
This Champagne sparkling wine comes in a bright and shiny lemon-yellow color, with some gold hues accentuating the intensity of its appearance.
The aromatic expression of the nose is also very intense. Filled with brioche and roasted nuts, it’s also floral and citrusy. Tension, intrigue, and complexity are the key words to describe the aromas. Powerful yet delicate.
The palate feels dry, dominated by solid acidity. But body and concentration balance it perfectly yet delivering a crisp mineral feel. Frothy texture with smooth body, flavors are intense and dominantly primary with rich fresh lemon. Delicate leesy characters are discrete and here simply to smoothen and complexify the experience. Very long finish.
A well-rounded and concentrated Blanc de Blancs, crisp and fresh yet weighty and well balanced on an acidic feel.
Retails around $85 or 55€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
