Description

A fresh and deeply aromatic vintage champagne

The estate

Since its creation in 1818 by husband and wife Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House is still independent, safeguarding for 7 generations all of its know-how and high quality of its vintages.

The vineyard

The Billecart-Salmon vineyard extends from the Côte des Blancs to the Montagne de Reims over nearly 100 hectares. The vines are cultivated and cared for in the traditional way in order to get closer to an authentic fruit that reflects the quality of the Champagne terroir.

The wine

Produced in limited quantities, the Clos Saint-Hilaire 2005 from the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House is named after the patron saint of the church in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. This exceptional cuvée is made from a single plot of one hectare of old vines planted in 1964 in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. The dosage of this Extra Brut Champagne is 1 g/litre.

Winemaking and ageing

This Blanc de Noirs champagne is vinified exclusively in casks with a long ageing period on lees for just over 14 years.

Blend

Pinot noir (100%).

Characteristics and tasting tips for Clos Saint-Hilaire 2005 from Billecart-Salmon

Tasting

Colour
The colour is bright, with subtle golden highlights. The effervescence is fine and delicate.

To serve

For the best tasting, serve between 12 and 14°C.

Food and wine pairing

This Clos Saint-Hilaire 2005 from Billecart-Salmon goes perfectly with wild turbot "ikejime."
