Billecart-Salmon : Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 2002


The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart was created in 1964 as a homage to the founder of the Champagne House.


This cuvée is the result of a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and partial vinification in oak barrels. The richness of the fruit is blended wonderfully, with an aromatic elegance.

The Pinot Noir gives the depth in flavor while Chardonnay adds up the zing and freshness.


20% of the wine is vinified in oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation. Ageing on lees in the estate’s cellars for 10 years. Dosage is 4g/litre.


The Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 2002 is made from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir from the Premier and Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims, and Valle de la Marne, as well as 40% Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs.


Colour

The wine is a bright and beautiful golden yellow hues. Consistent well defined bubbles.

Nose

The nose is rich and subtle with fragrance of orchard fruits; white peach, nectarine, plum alongside complex aromas of mandarin and toasty notes

Palate

The palate is balanced, with noble resin, toast, laced with stone fruits and refreshing juniper. The wine is splendidly full-bodied and has a lingering finish.
