La Revue Du Vin de France - Champagne December 2010

Having drawn a conclusion on this contest, one should praise the performance of the Billecart-Salmon champagnes. This family run House, located in Mareuil-sur-Ay, in the Marne valley, finds itself at the top of the white and rosé rankings! It is not just the quality of the raw materials, but the process of alcoholic fermentation, which takes place slowly at a low temperature (around 13°C), that gives the juice a very fine aromatic signature. Let's not forget that today Billecart-Salmon markets close to 2 million bottles. Proof that quality can be harmonious with quantity.

1. BILLECART-SALMON
15.5/20

Brut Réserve
A generous aromatic palate focused around red fruits portrayed by the pinot noir grape balanced out by the sweet notes of barley. A fair and precise nose, and a full body with a controlled richness. The substance and style are of a more potent genre than the Deutz classic

2. BILLECART-SALMON
15.5/20

Brut Rosé
A composed fine and aromatic palate; very moreish. An exemplary definition of wine; full bodied and with depth. This regal champagne would be revered in any House. The price of success? A price for a special cuvee.
