Concernant le Champagne Billecart - Salmon Clos Saint Hilaire 2002
Champagne Clos St Hilaire 2002 from BILLECART SALMON is one of today’s rarest and most prestigious champagne. Sourced from a unique plot of one hectare of old vines, this cuvée is exclusively elaborated from Pinot Noirs, and entirely raised in casks.
This single-cru Blanc de Noirs champagne has no dosage and is incredibly typical.
Following 15 years of aging in cellar, it is characterized by extremely fine bubbles. The nose offers a great vinous complexity of ripe fruits. In mouth, the texture is deep and ample, with slightly candied citrus aromas and panettone.
It is a real explosion of flavors : peach, tangerine, chesnut and precious wood… Its mineral finish ends with salivating notes.
This extraordinary 2002 vintage will continue to mature with power and elegance in the forthcoming years, and can be stored in your cellar for 10 further years.
Champagne Clos St Hilaire 2002 from BILLECART SALMON is produced in limited quantity, only 3700 numbered bottles. This wonderful cuvée is presented in its sumptuous wooden case.
