Billecart – Salmon Vintage Champagne 2009

Variety: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay , Pinot Meunier
Region: Champagne
Vintage: 2009

Intense and Seductive

This wine, with an extra brut dosage, is dominated by great Pinot Noir flavours which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and that signature touch of Pinot Meunier.

An ideal blend allowing the personality of the Champagne region’s great Pinot Noirs to dominate, combined with the elegance and subtlety of Chardonnays and that signature touch of Pinot Meunier.

The yellow colour has soft golden undertones, naturally enhanced by a fine, dynamic effervescence. A shining, very radiant effect that brings out the full potential of nine years of maturation in our ancestral chalk cellars.
A nervy, charming, tactile delight (chestnut cream, fresh blueberries and shortbread), emphasized by a delicate texture. The wine rises to a distinguished complexity with a persistent finale, crisply structured by the high-quality potential of such a sought-after vintage.
The delicious intensity of precise fruit with citrusy and nutty notes (grapefruit pulp, slivered almonds). A nuanced sensory development built around pastry scents (raw butter, white fruit jelly). A masterful aromatic expression with a refined, refreshing purity.
A deeply sculpted vintage with a noble, exquisitely distinctive character.

Awards:
96/100 - TYSON STELZER - APRIL 2021

"The result is of course the most powerful, characterful and immediate Billecart Vintage to date. (...) A very different take on Billecart Vintage, to be sure, yet nonetheless every bit worthy, and more than a little thrilling."

93 - JAMES SUCKLING - DECEMBER 2020

"First time with Pinot Meunier in the blend, helping to maintain balance in the hot 2009 vintage."

17/20 - MATTHEW JUKES - OCTOBER 2020

"Full, imposing, heady and main-course-shaped, this is Billecart for power-lifters!"
