Description

A delicious and balanced vintage champagne

The estate

Since its creation in 1818 by the married couple, Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, having preserved all of its know-how and demand for high-quality cuvées for 7 generations.

The vineyard

The Billecart-Salmon vineyard covers 100 hectares from Côte des Blancs to the Reims mountain. The vines are cultivated and cared for in a traditional manner so that the wine resembles real fruit and to reflect the quality of its terroir.

The wine

The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart was created in 1964 as a homage to the founder of this Champagne House.

Winemaking and ageing

20% of the product is vinified in oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation. Ageing on lees in the estate’s cellars lasts for 10 years. Dosage is 4g/litre.

Blend

The result of a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a partial vinification in oak barrels, this cuvée blends aromatic elegance wonderfully with the richness of fruit.

Tasting

Colour

This wine is a beautiful golden yellow colour, sparkling and engulfed with golden tints. Effervescence is delicate, with finely defined bubbles.

Nose

On the nose, the Nicolas François Billecart 1999 cuvée by the Billecart-Salmon house unleashes a beautiful aromatic richness. The cuvée is dominated by sugary notes of dried, lightly roasted fruits and nuts such as almonds, dried dates and chestnuts which are roasted then refined with a floral touch.

Palate

The palate has a strong character and balance. This exceptional champagne also holds a remarkable full-bodiedness.

Serving temperature

Serve at 11-12°C for optimal tasting.
