2008 Billecart-Salmon Vintage

The long awaited Billecart-Salmon 2008 is an extra brut comprising 65% Pinot Noir from Reims and Vallee de la Marne including Ay and 35% Chardonnay from mostly Grand Cru sites in Le Mesnil, Chouilly, Cramant and Oger. After careful vinification and 9 years on its lees, the result is a beautifully intense Champagne with white flower and Sicilian lemon notes on the nose and a balanced palate of citrus, stonefruit and a lightly creamy, brioche character. Today`s tasting also revealed just how expressive this wine is, even today. The aromas burst out of the glass and this continued through the palate. I`d definitely consider decanting this while it`s young because my sample continued to reveal more in the glass over the next five hours. Very long, very complete and very enjoyable. Like all Billecart Champagnes it has a great ability to develop gracefully in bottle. (CW 26/03/19)
