Billecart-Salmon

Sous Bois Brut Champagne

Color : White
Wine estate : Billecart-Salmon
Designation : Champagne
Name : Brut Sous Bois
Country : France
Vivino : 5/5
Note : I think Billecart is my favorite brand of champagne. At each tasting, a treat and wonder! With this "Blanc de noir", we have a character related to its passage in oak barrel which gives a beautiful complexity. A bright yellow robe with its fine bubbles, a nose of citrus, butter and toast. On the palate, the expression of his character with notes of toast, brioche. Just perfect.

Je crois que Billecart est ma marque de champagne préférée. À chaque dégustation, un régal et de l'émerveillement ! Avec ce "blanc de noir", nous avons un caractère lié à son passage en fût de chêne qui donne une belle complexité. Une robe jaune éclatante avec ses fines bulles, un nez d'agrumes, de beurre et de toast. En bouche, l'expression de son caractère avec des notes de pain grillé, brioché. Tout simplement parfait.

Champ d'Alouette Le Mesnil sur Oger Extra Brut Champagne 2002

Узбекский лимон, цедра желтого грейпфрута, бледный красный апельсин, желтое яблоко, марципан, прополис, жасмин, ромашка, битый камень, вкус батарейки. Выразительный и объемный, чуть монолитный аромат; спелый и энергичный вкус; слабо выраженная газация. Мощная структура с минеральными штрихами и тёплым алкогольным тембром. Яркой фактуре чуть недостаёт изящества и точености линий. В хорошей форме, с запасом. — 10 days ago

Boom💥...there it is! Might as well be my 3,500 post. Not many better ways to kick off a Friday night. Cheers! 🥂

Love the leaner, ripe & slightly sour fruits of, strawberries, cherries, white peach, tangerine, watermelon near the rhine, black cherries, powdery razor sharp chalkiness, gritty grey volcanic minerals, sea shell/spray, baguette crust, pink rose petals, beautiful acidity and rich, round reductive, long beautiful finish.

You might be exempt for more due to your, “Flock of Felines.”

I'm more of the opinion they are a crowd! If they weren't so damn cute...We'd have even more wine!

Polisy Brut Champagne 2002

DD: 04.2015
Лимонные леденцы, желтый грейпфрут, запеченое яблоко, персик, бриошь, эвкалипт, алоэ, бузина, лаковая деревяшка, минеральная вода, крошеный мел. Спелое тело с легкой оксидативностью и поддерживающей прямую осанку живой минеральной кислотностью. Хороший баланс щедрой фруктовости и свежей, пульсирующей структуры. Прямолинейно и без претензий на элегантное изящество, но органично и харизматично, с естественной фактурой.

I imagine this will go up by a point or two in the next few years but it’s crazy young. That being said, it’s quite easy to sip. Creamy on the front palate...bubbles are so tiny it’s hard to pick them out. Toasted brioche, limestone, honeyed cashews show once this has had an hour+ to open. Dom always has such a nice mid-palate of candied fruit and toasted honeycomb. Give it time! — 10 days ago

Nice bottle. Enjoyed right after pop, and again about 30 minutes after pop. Had definitely changed. More of a wholesome mango with some asian pear. I was getting a dry, nutty note towards the middle and finish. Very nice, and definitely youthful. You could hold this bottle for 15 years easily, and not have to worry one bit. Very balanced, structured, yet so so young. I'd rate this a 93 or 94 today, and likely 95-96 in 5-10 years.

Domaine Dehours

Mareuil le Port Les Rieux Coteaux Champenois Champagne Blend 2012

Айва, желтый грейпфрут, лимонные цукаты, моченое яблоко, устричные створки, мел. Цвет с легкой вуалью. Объемная, чуть смазанная натуральная фруктовость подпирается вертикальной кислотностью с яркой, контрастной минеральностью. Структурно и глубоко, немного упрощенно на средних частотах, чуть разбалансированно, но выразительно и харизматично. — 10 days ago
