Billecart-Salmon Champagne Brut Reserve NV Magnum 1.5L in Gift Pack

With reflections of straw yellow, this cuvée is recognisable by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and plentiful mousse. There is a maturity with a touch of floral freshness for this cuvée, which expresses aromas of fresh fruit and ripe pears. A full and precise flavour followed by a fine freshness and a rich bouquet bear witness to the ageing of this cuvée in the House’s traditional cellars.

93 Points, James Suckling "I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers and sliced pears and peaches. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish."

90 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with nine grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Réserve contains fully 55% reserve wines and is showing very well, offering up complex aromas of warm bread, crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and charming but lively, with an elegantly textural attack, a fleshy core of fruit and lively balancing acids."

91 Points, Wine Spectator "A vibrant, well-knit version, lacy in texture and offering an appealing mix of juicy fresh-cut apple, pear tart, pickled ginger, honey and lemon flavours."
