Product Overview

The non-vintage Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve is a light, fine and harmonious Champagne. With reflections of straw yellow, this cuvée is recognizable by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and plentiful mousse. In the nose, there is a maturity with a touch of floral freshness for this cuvée, which expresses aromas of fresh fruit and ripe pears. A full and precise flavor followed by a fine freshness and a rich bouquet bear witness to the aging of this cuvée in the House's traditional cellars. The ideal partner for every occasion. It is perfect as an aperitif and can be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes.

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"A minerally version, layering flavors of poached pear, slivered almond, black cherry and preserved lemon on the finely detailed mousse, firmed by a frame of steely acidity. Drink now." -AN, 12/15/19

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with nine grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Réserve contains fully 55% reserve wines and is showing very well, offering up complex aromas of warm bread, crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and charming but lively, with an elegantly textural attack, a fleshy core of fruit and lively balancing acids." -WK, 8/30/19

90 Points - Vinous
"(40% pinot meunier, 30% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay; L200352): Light, bright gold. Fresh red berries, orange zest and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering energetic redcurrant and blood orange flavors that show good concentration and a supple texture. A mineral nuance adds bite to the finish, with the floral note echoing." -JR, Dec/2013

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"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, 12/1/18
