Billecart-Salmon "Brut Reserve" Champagne Methuselah (6L)

SKU #1146562 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A fine straw-gold colour with great finesse of bubble flow and mousse. Joyful aromas of apple blossom and ripe pear. A full, defined palate demonstrates richness that will help to give this a long life in the cellar. (ME) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Plenty of ripe strawberries and wild raspberries on the nose here. Really attractive and vibrant in the mouth with fresh wild strawberries. It also shows a fleshy, fresh-fruit texture. Drink now. Inner quote mark (9/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Réserve is a blend of 40% Pinot Meunier (sourced in the Vallée de la Marne and the Coteaux Sud d'Epernay), 30% Chardonnay (from different villages along the Marne) and 30% Pinot Noir (from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne). The recent disgorgement from January 2018 is straw-yellow in color and based 40% on the 2015 harvest, with 60% of reserve wines. The result is a light and delicately fruity flavored cuvée with aromatic and spicy Pinot Meunier and redcurrant aromas intertwined with chalky expressions and notes of ripe pears and yeast. Round and fresh on the palate this is a light, finessed, elegant, very delicate and harmoniously fruity Brut with a stunningly intense, persistent, well-structured and purely salty finish. Very stimulating as a soloist, aperitif or with lighter dishes. (SR) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This producer's nonvintage cuvée showcases a blend of grapes from all the regions of Champagne. Rich with white stone fruit, it balances ripe acidity and a taut texture. This complex wine is ready to drink. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A firm and focused Champagne, with a minerally, chalk-tinged overtone and a lively mix of crushed black cherry, toast, candied pink grapefruit peel and apple blossom flavors. (AN, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark
