BILLECART-SALMON - Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 1999
***Rated 97 points by Tyson Stelzer (2014-2015)***
This cuvée is a blend of two different years revealing the special quality of the Chardonnay. Its complexity, its great vinosity and the surprisingly fresh finish is particularly appreciated by the most informed wine lovers. The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its gold colour.
A cuvée that will surprise you with its pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of fruits of white flesh.
The creamy sensation of the bubble associated to aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.
This great bottle will make a perfect marriage with caviar or fine oysters but also with grilled fish and seafood. Best served at 8°C.
