Blended from fruit grown in several grand cru villages of the Côte des Blancs, with an emphasis on Avize, this is a beautiful green-gold color, a wine fragrant with scents of spring flowers. It balances full-bodied richness with racy acidity, both expansive and mineral-tight. It finishes on a scent that brings to mind oyster shells, and calls out for a dozen freshly shucked Belons.
The balance of this wine is immediately striking. Everything is in its place: the crisp apples, tight acidity and the mineral texture are all just right. It’s a delicious, perfumed and fragrant wine that is ready to drink with its light, poised aftertaste.
A hint of salinity underscores the flavors of poached pear, marzipan, spiced plum and kumquat in this elegant blanc de blancs. Vibrant acidity drives this to a lasting, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020.
Aromas of sliced apple and pear with hints of flowers and cream. Some peach too. Full-bodied, creamy and fine with mineral, chalk and sliced green apples that turn to delicate white peach. This has a base of 2011 with some 2010 and 2009. Drink now.

Based on the 2013 vintage, supplemented by some 30% of reserve wines, Billecart's latest NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru wafts from the glass with aromas of warm bread, citrus oil, crisp green apple, white flowers and crushed chalk. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and precise, with a pretty core of fruit, fine-boned structure and a nicely defined finish.

I like this one for its delicate personality. Bright and zippy from beginning to end, the non vintage Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs exhibits chalk, mineral and dried citrus in the flavors; long, crisp finish. A great oyster wine!
