2000 Billecart-Salmon Cuvee ‘Nicolas-Francois Billecart'
Wine Rating 
 
96

This wine has everything you look for in a flagship release of one of the top Champagne houses, it has that great balance between youthful acidity and complex notes that make it a superb drink now, but having the potential to be an even more beguiling experience in the decades to come.

The wine is a light yellow in colour with a very fine bead emanating from the bottom of the glass, the nose gives brioche and honeyed characters against more delicate citrus aromas.

The palate expresses itself in waves with the entry providing complex biscuit characters and richer white peach that is cut through by a steely citrus acidity on the mid to back palate.

The wine finishes with great drive of citrus and honeyed stone fruits.
