K&L Notes

At K&L we love the trend toward zero-dosage Champagnes. This one hails from the hallowed house of Billecart-Salmon, super-famous for its rosé bubblies. This is their non-vintage blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Dry, yes! And great with food.

    Elegant with citrusy fruit and a saline edge, the Extra Brut is one of my favorites in Billecart-Salmon’s impressive line up. Exuberant with a superfine bead and gorgeously searing acidity, this still shows creaminess on the palate and a longer – albeit crisp and mineral-driven – finish. Age worthy.

    I love extra brut Champagne, and Antoine Billecart has made a great example of the style with this bottling. He and I drank this along with his team at Quince in SF the last time he was here, and with four years on the lees, it came across as dry, but without a hint of austerity. Many big houses lack respect for Meunier, but not Billecart- this wine gets its charm from the clean fruit that this indigenous grape brings to the blend. It is composed of 40% Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir and the long, cool fermentation and generous lees time has given this wine the fruit and balance to please even a first time extra brut drinker.

    Lime and green apple notes on the nose. Excellent acidity and cleanliness. Citrus flavors on the palate with lemon/lime, necatarine and some saline notes. A great wine to have with shellfish, whitefish and crab.
