Billecart-Salmon

Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Delectable Wine
9.7

The 2006 Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine, but it needs time to be at its best. I am surprised by how tightly wound it is. But that only makes me think what it might develop into with time in the cellar. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint, crushed rocks and sage meld together in a bright, crystalline Champagne endowed with terrific purity. The 2006 is 60% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne and 40% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, mostly done in steel, with just a touch of oak, around 5%. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. (Originally published in August 2020) (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2020) — 3 days ago

J'en Veux Encore !!! Gamay Trousseau 2017

That nose tho! Pristine, barely ripe tart cherries, cranberries, some va, a spice array of cinnamon, clove, star anise and allspice. A prickle of carbonic spritz on the palate. Lightweight and not complex, but pure, electric and joyful. — 23 days ago

Domaine François Cotat

Chavignol Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Bouteille orpheline exposée dans la vitrine du restaurant le Pied de cochon à Montréal, transformé temporairement, pandémie oblige, en pizzeria/caviste. Une fois les formalités d'adoption complétées, ce rosé n'a pas eu à patienter longtemps avant de rencontrer la vrille. On est loin ici du rosé de canicule. Sérieux, séveux, avec un profil aromatique assez unique et difficilement descriptible. On y trouve un petit fruit rouge, mais en mode mineur. La courte finale nous empêche d'exagérer la notation, mais ne gâche en rien l'expérience. Beau hasard! — 2 days ago

Silex Noir Vouvray Chenin Blanc

A white to savor. Beautiful precision from one of the benchmark producers of Vouvray. Wet wool, oxidized yellow apple, creamy viscosity on the palate still presenting as dry. This will age for years to come. Incredibly complex, I got something new every time I revisited the glass. — 22 days ago
