Subtle, aerial and harmonious, the Brut Reserve of the famous Billecart-Salmon House consists of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from the best terroirs of the Marne. This champagne is adorned with a fine lace of bubbles forming an abundant and persistent foam with pale golden reflections. Aromas of fresh fruits such as pear and peach accompany the floral notes of the nose. On the palate, the attack of this Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve is straightforward and accurate, followed by a radiant freshness and a long, elegant finale on the fruit.

Wine Advocate-Parker : Based on the 2015 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.
