External Reviews for Billecarte-Salmon Brut Reserve -Champagne France Sparkling & Champagne
A vibrant, well-knit version, lacy in texture and offering an appealing mix of juicy, fresh-cut apple, pear tart, pickled ginger, honey and lemon flavors. Drink now through 2020.
This blend includes 40 percent pinot meunier, the balance equal parts pinot noir and chardonnay. Its remarkable fruitiness might be tied to the firm’s long, slow, cool fermentations, which, they believe, allow meunier to maintain its perfume. This is a graceful, vinous Champagne with dramatic high notes of roses and red fruit, finishing clean with a grounding of pale earthiness. It’s a lovely prediction of what Champagne might become in a warming climate.
