The 2002 Billecart-Salmon ‘"Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne (WWB, 95) which has a massive mouthfeel and glorious texture right now. This vintage is just thrilling to enjoy right now, made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and resting for ten years on the lees. A bright beam of salinity falls over the limestone driven terroir, as Pink Lady Apple, kumquat zest and cinnamon infused sourdough bread flavors collide with minerals and the unctuous texture on the mouth. Generous, showing glorious length now at nearly the twenty year mark, this gorgeous bottling will have a long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2035- 95

At The Come Taste The Stars Dinner hosted by Tyson Stelzer. Another 60/40 blend of Pinot Noir/Chardonnay. Quite BdB - very lemony and Chardonnay in style. So fresh and young - you would never pick this as 17 years of age. Aged 13 years on Lees. Evolving at glacial pace with developing layers of complexity. Will mature to 2030. A wonderful Champagne from the excellent 2002 vintage. At Montrachet Restaurant in Brisbane.
