36. BILLECART-SALMON, Demi-Sec. Champagne
Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: Billecart-Salmon are based at Mareuil-sur-Ay, just north of Epernay
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Producer: Francois Billecart still runs the family estate. The whole business is geared to quality not quantity
Cellar Potential: No point in keeping Demi-Sec styles
Food Match: Billecart Salmon Demi-Sec is sweeter than Brut but feels 'soft' rather than properly 'sweet'. Good for anyone who finds Brut Champagne too harsh, or for the toast at a wedding; but not really a partner for cake or pudding
Old Bridge Rating: Compare our prices - I don't think you will find Billecart Salmon better priced in the U.K.
