Billecart Salmon Brut 97js 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"This shows depth and richness without being heavy. Complex aromas of sliced apple and peach follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, layered finish. This is so vinous and flavorful. One-third fermented in barrel and no dosage. What a great wine, great Champagne. The winemaker says it looks you straight in the eyes. 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay...97" JS 09/14
