Billecart Salmon have long been a favourite of ours as well as an under-the-radar superstar of the Champagne World. Situated in Mareuil-sur-Ay, a Premier Cru site that really should have Grand Cru status thanks to it's exceptional quality, in the Montage de Reims, Billecart Salmon have been wowing fizz drinkers for almost 200 years. Independent & Family owned this is the kind of house we love to follow and get behind.
The Brut Reserve is a fine and delicious drop, as light as a feather yet with wonderful supple complexity that make it equally at home as an aperitif as with fish, cheese or white meat starters. A classic combination of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Pinot Meunier, the wine is aged just a little longer than most houses to add a refined depth and richness of creamy lemon fruit with just a touch of ripe pear & elderflower. Superb.
