Possibly one of my all time favorite Champagnes. 75% Pinot Noir, and 25% Chardonnay, as a reflection of percentile of the two grapes cultivated in the grand cru village of Mailly. This is a delicate, pretty champagne - aromas of brioche, fresh squeezed lemon oil, baked apples, fresh grated ginger, and vanilla. The pallet is zippy in acidity because of its youth, but will age so nicely - flavors of pistachio creme brulee, white peach, nutmeg, golden apple, and lemon juice.
Takes me back to their cave.. where I could stay forever!

Fluance Franc Pascal
На старте ведет себя сдержанно и скромно.
Приятное и не отвлекающее, с легкой древесной горчинкой в финише.
В развитии перестает смущаться и пышет тонами булочки бриошь, ванильных эклеров желтых персиков. Плотное, долгое, серьезное. Шаманское для интеллектуала.
Хорошо пойдет под русскую кухню.

Our second favorite NV Rosé Champagne. Nice slightly liqueured black cherries, cherries, ripe strawberries, a blend of black raspberries & raspberries, watermelon, pomegranate juice, pink roses, just the right amount and intensity of chalkiness, saline and baguette with perfect acidity and rich long finish. Not the fruit extraction of Ruinart Rosé and not the sharp fine powdery chalkiness of Billecart-Salmon. Rides the fence of both. Photos of; their beautiful estate, underground cellar (you gotta love those moldy walls & bottles), A-frame racks in the cellar and meticulously manicured vines. Beautiful property! — 16 days ago
Wow- this bottle is a lot fresher than the one we drank a year ago. The Robert Fleury is a barrel fermented blend of 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. Earthy dark fruit, Krug like barrel influence and savor are balanced by 2004 snap. With foie gras, pour le dimanche! — 6 hours ago
Pale Gold with persistent fine bead. Notes of freshly baked apple crumble which proceeded to gain complexity with air. On the palate rich and sweet with ripe apple/ citrus flavours and an underlying chalky powdery dryness. Sprightly acidity. Overall - an aristocrat , being delicate refined restrained and persistent. Celebrating a good sale! A great cuvée from an excellent vintage. Will live for ages. — 8 days ago
When you open your fridge & a bottle of Perrier Jouet falls 6ft onto the solid tiled floor exploding everywhere! That wasn't the worst part 😝 I'm on dual blood thinners & the glass exploded into my foot causing a 10 minute river of blood finish 🤕 That's ok now but I'm more sad I lost a bottle of champagne & we still haven't found the cork 🤣 Practice safe champagne this week folks 😁
The champagne is still a solid 90 points @ £25 😎 — 14 days ago
Another weekly wine Committee lunch that I was able to attend, hosted by @Weston Eidson & @Colby Siratt. Excellent job, fellas! All wines tasted blind as usual.
Awesome french champagne. All typical french champagne traits were present (brioche, crisp green apple, sweet lemon, loads of minuscule bubbles). Delicious. — 4 days ago
Billecart is fermented very slowly at very low temperatures, an innovation that was introduced by a German brewer who married into the family in the 1950's. The reserve is composed of approximately 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Meunier. I find it the most zesty and refreshing of all the grand marque styles, and always of very high quality. — 7 days ago
