I enjoyed getting to revisit this and spend more time with it after trying it for the first time a few weeks go at a Billecart tasting. Totally open for business now. Very fresh. Bright and ripe white peach, apricot, honeysuckle and honeyed pastry aromatics. Fine bead, light yet creamy mousse, with sharp acidity, highlighted by golden delicious apple, chalky limestone, sea salt and powdered lemon bar. Thanks @Jason Jones

Champagne Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Louis Brut Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2006.

This wine has a creamy, fine mousse and is positively decadent. This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay and the years are unveiling some seriously layered, complex aromatics from yellow apple and pear to white blossom, dried white rose, brioche, pastry, butterscotch, blanched almond, and marzipan.

It resembles a caramel apple, but maybe that’s the autumn speaking.

It has an impeccable balance of acidity complementing the still fresh fruit and richly confectionary notes. It has complexity across primary, secondary, and tertiary aromas and flavors. Its aromas and flavors are concentrated and eager to present themselves. It has a long elegant finish and, in sum, all of the markers of an outstanding wine.

Worthy of celebration, we’re popping this bottle to mark the turning of a page - the beginning of a new chapter - one driven by passion, creativity, and hope. Cheers!

Young and full potential to be spectacular. Apple and brioche in the nose, I. The mouth a lot happens, of course it’s fresh but also there is complexity and concentration.

Rich champagne, amazing flavor. Silky mouth-feel. With every taste there is another level of flavor.

Sublime bottle! Rich, but not yeasty. Nose evolved into notes of Flinstones vitamins, but in a good way! Can’t think of a better way to kickoff birthday week🎉🥂🍾
