Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Vintage NV
92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...offers up a fine nose of green apple, pink grapefruit, bread dough, lovely chalky soil tones and a gentle topnote of yeastiness. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and complex, with fine balance, tiny bubbles, bright acids and fine length and grip on the blossoming and serious finish. This is still young days for this wine and another year or two should add a nice note of brioche to the flavors and even more generosity on the palate. A classy Blanc de Blancs. 2008-2018.

Excellent Chardonnay Champagne, doesn't dry your mouth out like some. Fine bubbles and not overly sweet.
an amazingly smooth-drinking champagne, with very fine bubbles. a tiny bit of vanilla without any cloying sweetness makes this one of my favorite bubblies.
