Happy Friday!

Been having a lot of Blanc Brut lately. Sooo good to get back to one of our favorite N/V Rosé Champagne’s.

Numerous, numerous notes stand.

Tonight; Blood orange, pink grapefruit covered in an ice cream creamsicle, volcanic, powdery chalkiness, sea fossils, pink roses, excellent acidity and balance, elegance and polish for days.

Photos of; amazing sunset shot of one of Billecart’s Grand Cru vineyards, two shots inside the House of Billecart and the grounds of Billecart.

Normally, we are just fine with their N/V Rosé Champagne. Thought it was time to switch it up and pull out a bottle of vintage.

The nose reveals; blood orange, tangerine, pink rose petal infused strawberries, pink grapefruit w/ a dash of sugar, rhubarb, under ripened watermelon, Rainier cherries, apricots, peach, hints of black cherries, touch of oyster shell, saline, sea fossils, grey volcanics, some white spice, crumbled, dry chalk, hints of bread dough, yeasty notes & baguette crust/toast, coriander, fruit blossoms, peach colored lilies, orchids in a field of wild flowers.

The mousse is extremely delicate with micro-oxygenation. Caresses the palate like a feather duster. Blood orange, tangerine, pink rose petal infused strawberries, pink grapefruit w/ a dash of sugar, rhubarb, under ripened watermelon, Rainier cherries, apricots, yellow peach, hints of black cherries, marmalade fruit pieces, touch of oyster shell, saline, sea fossils, palate gripping fine grain grey volcanics, limestone minerals, pronounced white spice with gentle yet punctuating heat, vanillin, crumbled, dry chalk, hints of bread dough, yeasty notes & baguette crust/toast, coriander, fruit blossoms, peach colored lilies, orchids in a field of wild flowers. The acidity is beautiful...near perfect. The finish is; elegant, very refined, well knitted and balanced in fruit & earth and persists endlessly with just the right level of white spice. Excellent.

Photos of; House of Billecart, Riedel Sommelier Flutes, Billecart Tasting Salon and cellared bottles.

Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend

Wonderful! Still very young, plenty of tension driven by citrus and minerality, eventually opening up more. Quite elegant — 10 days ago
