Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne
This is a finely balanced non-vintage Brut. It has great swathes of yellow fruit and crisp lime flavor that lend a stylish freshness. Already showing some touches of toast and bottle age, this is a ready-to-drink wine.
Bright, with tangy acidity and a lively bead, this displays fruit-forward flavors of macerated apricot, pineapple and Granny Smith apple, with hints of ginger, biscuit and kumquat. Drink now through 2016.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Reserve is an attractive, easygoing wine with good up-front fruit and an accessible personality. Flowers, dried pears and spices are some of notes that linger on the finish.
This is a very good price on this elegant Grand Marque. This cuvee is mostly Chardonnay, rich and also clean and refreshing. The wine has a lot of pretty green apple fruit, a creamy texture and elegant, tiny bubbles. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
