Tasting Notes:

Power and complexity ... Since 1998, this exceptional cuvée is a tribute to the co-founder of the House, Elisabeth Salmon. Amazing coppery-pink glints, with a delicate hazelnut nose, showing herbaceous overtones and hints of marzipan. Its finesse persits in a lively and complex way.

Billecart-Salmon owns a total of 15 hectares of vineyards. Eleven of these are in the Vallee de la Marne split between 4ha of Grand Cru in Ay and Premier Cru in Mareuil-sur-Ay and 7ha in the village of Damery. In the Cote des Blancs the family owns 4ha of Grand Cru vineyards in the villages of Chouilly, Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. With respect to harvest one of the most distinctive aspects of Billecart-Salmon is their philosophy that an early harvest yields more elegant and delicate champagnes. They look for a strong acid structure rather than alcohol as a preservative and therefore, never harvest at higher than 10 degrees of potential alcohol.

Developed from a blend of grand cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to which some Pinot Noir from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, initially fermented in oak casks and vinified as red wine, has been added.

Food pairing

Perfect with fresh salmon sashimi.
