Billecart Salmon Extra Brut 96js 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, James Suckling: “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. No. 10 Wine of JS.com in 2014.” 7/15. 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "Billecart-Salmon's style is dry, so an Extra Brut will be almost bone-dry. This wine is crisp and tight, bringing out grapefruit and citrus flavors and a steely, mineral character. It is still young, with freshness dominant, and needs to mature to blossom into a very fine Champagne. Drink from 2018." 7/15.
