Description Billecart Salmon Brut Réserve.
This Champagne Brut not Millésimé is made using the three essential grape varieties of the Champagne region: 30% Chardonnay from the magnificent crus of the Marne, 30% Pinot Noir from the characteristic crus of the Montagne de Reims and Grande Vallée de la Marne, and finally 40% Pinot Meunier from the crus of the Vallée de la Marne and Coteaux sud d'Epernay.
After the harvest, the wine is bottled on lees for at least 30 months' aging in the deep cellars.
Its color is a beautiful pale gold with shimmering golden highlights.
On the nose, we perceive a fine bouquet with notes of white flowers and white-fleshed fruit such as peach or vine nectarine, with a light touch of pear and citrus zest. On the palate, the berries are even more present, accompanied by subtle accents of lychee and southern Italian bergamot.
This Champagne is the ideal companion for a successful aperitif, pairing perfectly with sushi, smoked salmon maki, gambas fritters from the Seudre basin, Marennes-Oléron or Belon oysters, grilled pibales flambéed with Cognac in Japanese or Asian style. It is also splendid with white fruit tarts in spring, or with summer fruits such as pears, peaches, Reine-Claude or Cretan apricots. Finally, it proves marvelous with fruit sorbets.
The ideal serving temperature is around 10°C.
