CHAMPAGNE AND OTHER SPARKLING WINES

Fizz - BILLECART-SALMON, Cuvée Nicolas Francois Billecart. Champagne

2002 BILLECART-SALMON, Cuvée Nicolas Francois Billecart. Champagne

Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: Billecart are based in Mareuil-Sur-Ay, just north of Epernay
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
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: At its peak from 2020, keep to 2028
Old Bridge Rating: The 'NFB' is the most ageworthy of the many BS bottlings. In a mammoth blind tasting to find the best Champagne of all time, it was two older vintages of this wine that came both first and second. The 2002 is a serious, intense wine, as good as any this fine house has made in the past
