Description

  • Dry style
  • Floral notes
  • Pear & peach
  • Persistent mousse

"I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers and sliced pears and peaches.  Full-bodied yet agileand fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish. Mostly 2011 with some reserve wines. From 47% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and the rest pinot noir " James Suckling, Wine Spectator

"I tasted 18 current non vintage cuvées of the most famous champagne houses last week blind – a rare treat – and Billecart- Salmon Brut Réserve was the most impressive for me" Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine

This cuvée, with reflections of straw yellow, stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse. Maturity touched with floral freshness for this cuvée that breathes aromas of fresh fruit and ripe pears. A full and accurate flavour combined with a fine freshness and a rich bouquet bear witness to the ageing of this cuvée in the House’s traditional cellars.

The Brut Réserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region.

The BILLECART-SALMON Brut Réserve is the ideal partner for every occasion. It is perfect as an aperitif and can be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes. It should be served at 8°.
