Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blanc 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

The quest for "finesse, balance and elegance" has always guided<br/>the making of the Billecart-Salmon Champagnes. The Blanc de Blancs possesses<br/>vivid lemony notes along with pear, honeysuckle, and green apple<br/>characteristics. It has potential to last for the next 5-8 years.<br/><br/>

At first, we notice very fine bubbles in a single line, which to me is a trademark from Billecart-Salmon. The foam is light and disappear slowly. On the nose, white flowers and lemon. The aromas are present but not overwhelming. This Champagne is all about subtlety. On the palate, it is an explosion of aromas, complex, but very well balance. Honey, more lemon and white flowers, with a well integrated minerality. The finish is lingering and quite long. Another great example of this Grande Maison de Champagne that should drink well for many years. QC http://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com

The Chardonnay fruit comes from the best Grand Cru parcels in the villages of Cramant (for finesse), Avize (for fruit power) and Mesnil-sur-Oger (for structure hence longevity). A brilliant bottle of Champagne to cellar for decades to come.
