Les Rendez-vous de Billecart-Salmon
In its continuous quest for excellence, Billecart-Salmon is constantly experimenting with new methods to further improve the quality of its wines. A range has been born from the fruit of this work to offer you a unique tasting experience. Precise, New, Bold, each new release will epitomise an exceptional terroir and a champagne grape variety as well as the art of a meticulous winemaking.
A sublime grape variety and terroir
Billecart-Salmon takes you to the historic vineyards of Leuvrigny, Festigny and Venteuil in the heart of Vallée de la Marne.
Here you will discover a new expression of Pinot Meunier, revealing a very special identity. The delicacy of its floral notes and the sweetness of its fruity aromas from this single varietal wine will brighten up your most beautiful shared moments.
A treat for the eyes that glistens and gleams, with a distinctive golden-yellow hue flecked with silver, and the customary stream of tiny bubbles.
A sensual textured mouthfeel that blossoms into deeply delicious, fruity notes (white cherry, pear and redcurrant). A blissful sensation of flying high, with senses elevated and honed. Finally, a finish that is just as enjoyable, lengthening to notes of white pepper with a pleasantly saline tartness.
Wonderfully balanced floral sensations (lime and violet) combined with the summery scents of freshly-cut wheat fields (grain and straw). This cuvée will awaken your senses to notes ranging from crisp fruit to juicy citrus. A highly delicate blend where the character of the Pinot Meunier subtly reveals itself.
This new arrival reaffirms how a pure Pinot Meunier should be. Served at cellar temperature (10/12°), you may wish to consider pairing it with a veal and foie gras pie, or Pâté en Croûte.
From Florent NYS, Billecart-Salmon’ chief winemaker.
In Perfect Harmony with Stéphanie Le Quellec,
Chef at Restaurant La Scène **, Paris
“ My first encounter with Billecart-Salmon dates back around 10 years, at Terre Blanche, with my chef and friend Philippe Jourdin. That is when I discovered the Brut Rosé cuvée. I still remember the emotions I felt on first tasting it.
This new Billecart-Salmon cuvée has a very distinct personality. It is straightforward, balanced and frank, with attractive salty notes on the finish. I can well imagine such a cuvée accompanying my brioche bread pudding with caviare, or complemented by a beautiful Cour d’Armoise chicken in a surf-and-turf version combined with a blue lobster and a delicious cream sauce infused with taget.
All obviously enhanced by the setting of a beautiful table at La Scène or with a group of friends on the edge of the ocean. ”
