Billecart-Salmon Vintage 2006
A glowing edition of a ripe and vibrant 2006 season, golden yellow hue and enticing & energetic bead. Ripe characters are balanced with soft spice and brioche. Perhaps not as recognised for their vintage wines, and definately a step away from the house style of the traditional Non Vintage Brut Reserve NV, it is seen to be more linear and driven, Firmer acid line pairs this champagne extremely well with food. Refreshing zingy grapefruits and mature lemon nuances ensures an integrated feel with its ripe stone fruits and spicy front palate.
Certainly a vintage example with character, with depth and is overall very enjoyable.
