Billecart-Salmon 2002 Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Sparkling (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection

With its ripe fruits, rich texture and layers of toast, this is a great wine. It shows the quality of the great 2002 vintage brilliantly. It’s complex and concentrated with an array of mature fruit flavors that combine to a structured whole. It will improve with age, so drink this great Champagne through 2025 and perhaps longer.

Billecart-Salmon NV Brut sous Bois Sparkling (Champagne)

Fermented in wood, this mature and rich Champagne is sophisticated and stylish. It has a rich, full-bodied character with hints of spice as well as dry, citrus fruits. It has a steely core, showing a taut texture as well as some maturity. Ready to drink, it will also age in bottle.

Billecart-Salmon 2004 Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection

This is a superb Blanc de Blancs that boasts great minerality, texture and intense fruit flavor. It’s a finely structured wine, now approaching maturity with its apple, citrus and green pear notes. Lingering in the mouth, it is a beautifully long-lasting, pure wine. Drink until 2018 and probably beyond.

Billecart-Salmon 2000 Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Sparkling (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90

A wine that strikes a great balance between its intense fruitiness and a pure steely character. It makes it a dry Champagne, with the richness of a great wine. It has weight, intensity and several years more aging.

Billecart-Salmon 1996 Cuvée Nicolas Francois Brut Sparkling (Champagne)

  1. $120

A very dry style of Champagne that needs food. At this stage, this wine is young, with vibrant acidity and dense, green fruit. But it has a long future ahead of it, and shortly should show some toast and maturity. Serve this with fish, and appreciate its qualities even more. Imported by Robert Chadderdon Selections.

Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Rosé Sparkling (Champagne)

  1. $75

Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now.

Billecart-Salmon 2002 Cuvée Elisabeth Salmon Brut Rosé Sparkling (Champagne)

  1. $222

This is a beautifully balanced, elegant and mature sparkler. There is fruit—ripe strawberry—but the main character is its fine balance and richness. It can age, though it is at its best now.

Billecart-Salmon 1999 Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $120

A beautifully crisp wine, very mineral, with its citrus and green apple flavors given a fine texture of bright acidity. It is still so young, with just a hint of toast to show some maturity. The finish is shockingly fresh.
