    This is one of the best bottles of champagne that we currently have in stock. From one of the best vintages in the 20th and 21st century! Stone fruits, citrus, and toasted nuts on the nose. Very aromatic and delicate. On the palate, a very fine bead, with the aforementioned toasted nuts, citrus, marmalade and cake notes. Don't be afraid of the low dosage! This adds minerals and light chalk but, it is not one of these teeth chattering high acid bubblies. Like everything else Billecart-Salmon, it is just right!

    This is an excellent bottle of wine that you won't want to sleep on. This 2002 Champagne from the great house of Billecart Salmon has aged gracefully and is drinking wonderfully right now. White cherry, ripe peach, citrus and toasted nuts round out this full-bodied, layered wine. It has chalky minerality too, which just adds to the complexity. For the Champagne enthusiasts and Billecart fans - this is for you!

    This spectacular offering from Billecart-Salmon is composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. It is fermented primarily in stainless steel at very cold temperatures to give it the freshness that we all love, but 13% was done in oak for added richness. The dosage is very low, just 5 grams per liter, and just over 4,000 cases were made. The wine has a very creamy Nutella and white fruit nose with a very clean, citric flavor. The NFB has presence on the palate, with plenty of concentration and texture, and a very long finish that shows off the savor of the top-quality Pinot Noir in the blend. This is one of the top wines from the 2002 vintage, and it is great to see the patience of the Billecart family, who are releasing this as one of the last 2002s to market. This has great potential for keeping but will not last long in our stocks!
