Loads of yeast, pears, white flowers, balance of acidity and fruit.

Very tasty indeed with plenty of brioche and pear. Calls for enjoying with some food.

Wanted something special so I reached for a Billecart. Nice straw yellow, fine bubbles with a bouquet of fresh fruit and a waft of citrus scents. The palate shows flavors of ripe dried fruit, with underlying chalky mineral tones, with a noted presence of Pinot Noir. The finish was well balanced and long length, exhibiting a touch of smokiness. I should note that this N.V. is a blended wine that Billecart-Salmon uses 50% of its reserve wine to make. Very Nice, Enjoy!!

On the nose; mostly reductive in style with a hint of oxidation, Bosc pear, bruised apples, ginger soda, overly ripe pineapple, quince, saline, chalky minerals and weathering yellow lilies. The body is rich & creamy. Bosc pear, lemon citrus, bruised apples, ginger soda, overly ripe pineapple, brioche, quince, saline, chalky minerals and weathering yellow lilies. Nice acidity and rich polished finish. I enjoy the Brut Reserve but not as much as their N/V Rosé. Photos of their amazing Estate, Estate interior, dusty & moldy cellar and vineyard staff tending vines. Heading to BS rehab & weening my way off BS Rosé via their Brut Reserve. 🤣 @Severn Goodwin @Chow Food & Bar
