In a recent tasting of the very best Champagnes by James Suckling, this exquisite fizz came second - with an equal score to Vintage Krug 2000 and ahead of all the other big names, Dom Perignon, Cristal et al. It was beaten only by Salon 2002 which costs much more than twice price. A delicious, decadent champagne - and a relative bargain to boot.

A superfine nose with the freshness still very much leading the way. Lemon and fresh wild strawberries, almond milk and a hint of brulée toffee; really lively. The palate has a bright, crunchy and assertive burst of lemon flavor on entry with white cherries and smooth, sherbet-like texture that delivers weight with elegance. Great balance here. Impressive and youthful, super pure and full of power.

Billecart Salmon: Full Wine List and Profile
Founded by Nicolas-Francois Billecart in 1818, and situated in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, this remains one of the few family owned businesses in Champagne. In fact, the family has 100% control of production. They obtain their grapes from an area covering 220 hectares, the majority of which come from in and around the region of Épernay, and own a total of 15 hectares themselves. Today the estate is run by François and Antoine Roland-Billecart, the 6th generation of the family to lead the independent House, still with the support of their father Jean Roland-Billecart.
