Champagne 2008 Vintage Cuvee from Billecart-Salmon is an intense wine. It is made from a blend of 65% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley and 35% Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs (Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger , Chouilly and Vertus). This beautiful blend was partially vinified in the undergrowth (20%). The dosage of this Vintage 2008 is Extra Brut in order to express a vintage already with good maturity.
Champagne tasting :
To the eye, a golden color underlined by bubbles of great finesse.
On the nose, citrus and fruit notes, before subsequently evoking pastry notes (raw butter, mirabelle plum jelly).
On the palate, nice tension. We find the fruit aromas discovered on the nose, as well as a gourmet touch.
The 2008 vintage Billecart-Salmon champagne will find beautiful pairings with noble fish or crustaceans.
