PRODUCT INFORMATION

Intense and Seductive.

This wine with an Extra Brut dosage is dominated by the great Pinot Noir flavours which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs.

France, Champagne

APPELLATION:

Champagne AOC

GRAPES:

 65% Pinot Noir 35% Chardonnay

APPEARANCE:

The yellow gold hue is adorned with delicate, soft golden glints. It has a subtle effervescence, benefitting from 9 years aged in our chalk cellars.

AROMA:

A delicious fruit intensity with elegant lemony citrus notes and nuts (flaked almonds, Menton lemons). There is a long and nuanced sensory development centred around exquisite hints of patisseries (raw butter, Mirabelle plum jelly).

PALATE:

A taut and seductive tactile pleasure (citrus zest, seeded white flesh fruit and Breton biscuits). The wine offers a persistent finish with a structure defined by the quality of its potential as a great vintage.

FOOD PAIRING:

A vintage which is deeply engrained with a noble character and great distinction. Enjoy with the best quality fish, carpaccio of scallops and vegetable ravioli.

SERVICE TEMPERATURE:

11/12 °C

The newly released 2008 Extra Brut Vintage from Billecart-Salmon is still—predictably—quite youthfully reticent, opening in the glass with a lively bouquet of citrus oil, crisp white peach, white flowers, cardamon and nutmeg. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, chiseled and precise, with a tight-knit core, lovely underlying chalky extract and a tensile finish. This is a vintage Billecart with more-than-usual upside, and it will be worth following for two decades in a cold cellar.
