Rendez-Vous No 2 (Pinot Noir) Extra Brut NV
|Grapes||Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier|
This latest limited release from Billecart marks the second in their 'Rendez-Vous' range. 100% Pinot Noir, made up mostly with 2014 base wines from the villages of Ambonnay and Verzenay of the Montagne de Reims. The vineyards here are ideally positioned, facing south, on chalk subsoil, with roots buried deep underground. The 2014 base for this is blended with 22% reserve wines from 2012 - all vinified in stainless steel tanks - then aged on lees for 65 months. This Extra Brut has a dosage of just 2 g/l.

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A generous textured and tactile mouthfeel with intense fruity notes of candied lemon paste, tangerine and licorice. The mid-palate evolves towards a chalky and slightly peppery tastes. The finish highlights a refreshing minerality with tangy flavours of fresh raspberries.
This second 'rendez-vous' release reveals the identity of a pure Pinot Noir from exceptional terroirs. Served at cellar temperature (10/12°), it will pair wonderfully with a Ceviche of Gambero Rosso (prawns), or intense crab and creamy sauce.Winemaker's notes (Sep 2021)
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. 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.
