Billecart-Salmon Brut Champagne Cuvee Nicolas Francois 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points James Suckling: A rounded vintage, with very attractive white peach, apricot and nectarine fruits as well as lemon and yellow grapefruit, dried flowers, orange rind and some clotted cream. The palate has an assertive, sturdy and punchy feel to it. Bright acidity that's lime sorbet-like. Good length and plenty of fresh stone fruit flavors. Fleshy and lively. Drink this now. (10/4/17)

Vintage: 1998 06/26/2007

The "Nicolas François" was created to honor the founder of this wonderful Champagne house that was started in 1818. A blend of Grand Cru vineyard fruit from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.
