Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Billecart-Salmon
A 100% chardonnay two-vintage blend from the grand cru vineyards of the Côtes des Blancs. Intense, complex and sophisticated, with real presence and poise rich and textured with pronounced green apple, lemon meringue and brioche. Perfectly balanced, with a strikingly fresh finish.
"Exhibiting aromas of citrus oil, tart stone fruit, freshly baked bread and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and layered, its sweet core of fruit framed by racy acids and chalky structure." Drink 2025-2043.

"100% Chardonnay from four grands crus on the Côtes de Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger. An exceptionally elegant, silky and surprisingly delicate champagne. I was expecting power, but this is like a mouthful of shimmering ribbons. An unusual floral fragrance, like the elusive scent of lily of the valley in an early-morning garden. Rich citrus woven into baked pear, tingling with green-apple sherbet. The bubbles float over the wine like cashmere lace. Tremendous purity. And the wine develops in the glass in a way I was not expecting, becoming richer, more dense, beginning to taste of violets and fresh-churned pink clay, of bread-yeast starters and sleepy pools of candlelight. A poet's champagne." Drink 2022-2028.
