The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 1999 of the champagne house Billecart-Salmon is the result of a blend of grand crus from the classified towns of Côte des Blancs for the Chardonnay and Montagne de Reims for the Pinot Noir. This prestigious cuvée is a tribute to the founder of the Champagne company. This wine has a beautiful yellow gold colour. Its robe is bright and envelopped with golden reflects. The effervescence is delicate with fine and chiselled bubbles. On the nose, the Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 1999 of the Billecart- Salmon expresses a beautiful aromatic richness. It is dominated by pralined notes of slightly roasted nuts like almonds, dry dates or grilled chestnuts, then refined to a floral note. In the mouth, it is characterful and has balance. This confirms a remarkable vinosity for this exceptional champagne.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Billecart-Salmon 1999 Brut Nicolas Francois Billecart âÇô its Pinot predictably from the Montagne de Reims and Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs âÇô accompanies aromatic overtones of yeast and baked goods with an almost doughy sense of substantiality and plushness, yet features as well the buoyancy and the bright lemony and crabapple-y acidity with attendant cut and freshness that are hallmarks of this houseâÇÖs style. The understatement to this cuveeâÇÖs melange of herbs ranging from lemon verbena to blond tobacco as well as its subtly alkaline and chalky undertone are also characteristics I associate with the name Billecart-Salmon; and nutty hints of evolution are quite discrete, suggesting a younger wine. Metaphorically cooling; laid-back and soothing; yet offering stimulating refreshment and intrigue, this will probably be well worth following for another 4-6 years.
