BILLECART-SALMON, Brut Réserve. Champagne

Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: Billecart-Salmon is based at Mareuil-sur-Ay, just north of Epernay, in the heart of Champagne.
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Producer: Francois Billecart still runs the family estate. The whole business is geared to quality not quantity. One of the keys to their success is that the non-vintage wine uses up to 25% of 'reserve wine' (mature wines used to balance out the latest harvest). And those reserve wines are all kept to mature in magnums
Cellar Potential: Perfect on release, but you gain a layer of biscuity complexity for each extra year you keep it
Food Match: Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve's mineral edge makes it a brilliant match for seafood
Old Bridge Rating: Perhaps the most quality-conscious house in Champagne. Very dry; fine and delicate. And we don't think you will find this outstanding Champagne better priced in the U.K.
Press Reviews: "No matter where you are or how you're feeling, Billecart will cheer you up; it's the definitive pick-me-up. It's staggeringly good value too. If you've never tasted a bottle of Billecart, then you're in for a treat." (Daily Mail - Dec 2009)
The important wine magazine 'La Revue du Vin de France' tasted all the great names of Champagne in December 2010. Billecart-Salmon came top of the non vintage wines, some way ahead of Bollinger, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot etc. The rosé won its category too
