Some wood elevage adds light, cedary notes to the brioche, spiced-berry and apple-pastry aromas The palate has a smooth, full and focused feel with lemon-peel and white-cherry flavors in a crisp, assertive and fresh mode. Poached strawberries to close. This is superb! Drink now. Rating: 93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Aug 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

The distinctive Sous Bois style is inspired by oak fermented parcels destined for Billercart's top cuvees. It upholds the mandate of Billecart in freshness, tightness and elegance thanks to retention of malic acidity, charging it with drive and freshness, and with a swirling undercurrent of impressive richness. It sings with classic Billecart precision, while basking in the richness of barrel fermentation. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 95 Decanter Magazine(Jul 2018)

A radiant crystalline yellow colour with a super-fine mousse. It displays terrific fresh lemon and orchard fruit scents. The palate has a creamy, caressing texture with bracing vivacity, leading into brioche notes on the finish. Great maturity and virtuoso use of oak. Rating: 95-95 Decanter Magazine(Feb 2017)

Billecart Salmon

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.
