Balance and Harmony best describe this Champagne Brut Réserve from Maison Billecart-Salmon. Elabored with 3 grape varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier are sourced 20 kilometers around Epernay. Exactly where are located the greatest crus, on the Montagne de Reims, the Côte des Blancs and the Marne Valley.
Champagne Brut Réserve develops flower fragrances, together with fresh fruits aromas such as peach and ripe pear. It is extremely subtle and sharp. An explosion of freshness and fruits. It develops rich aromas which confirms its 3 years of cellar ageing, which is twice longer than the appelation requirements.
Extremely well rated by the greatest Champagne critics, this cuvée is aimed for every joyful moments of life, with friends, during the meal or the aperitif. The chef Michel Rostang from Maison Rostang in Paris recommends this cuvée with ginger crab and zucchini cream.
A superb Champagne Brut Réserve, without year, which perfectly embodies the style of Maison Billecart-Salmon. In MATHUSALEM (in its wooden case for transportation), it is ideal for the greatest parties as it allows to serve approximatively 50 flutes !
