A blend of Grand Crus Pinot Noir (70%) and Chardonnay (30%), with 20% of the cuvee vinified in 5 year-old oak casks. Billecart-Salmon say this champagne benefits from decanting - slowly pour the champagne so it trickles down the side of your decanter. This calms the bubbles and allows it to breathe.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/09/2011

Appearance

Clear, golden yellow with plentiful and persistent mousse.

Aroma

Yeasty, buttery brioche with crisp green apple, galia melon, quince, citrus and dried fruit aromas.

Taste

Wonderfully well balanced acidity on the yeasty palate with the crisp Bramley apple and melon fruit promised on the nose.

Aftertaste

Melon fruit finally dominates the apple in the rewarding finish.
