From François DOMI, Billecart-Salmon’ chief winemaker.



In Perfect Harmony with Michel Rostang

Chef, Maison Rostang**, Paris


 It’s now more than 20 years since I started working with Maison Billecart-Salmon. We often share great times together – they are as much familial as they are professional. They share a family history and it’s a wonderful story between the two family Houses! The Brut Réserve is a cuvée which is both delicate whist at the same time exhibiting a great finesse. Ideal as an aperitif or paired with a dish that is light and refined and doesn’t overpower the wine. I’m thinking of a dish that we serve on our menu at the restaurant: crab spiced with ginger and a creamy courgette sauce which is topped with Daurenki caviar. The pairing is subtle and the dish perfectly accompanies this ethereal cuvée which exhibits a great finesse. For me, the Brut Réserve cuvée is the perfect synonym for pleasure and excellence at any time of the day! A moment of joy and a light-hearted accompaniment to everyday celebrations to liven up all the best memories in life for all the simple yet precious times that we share with family or amongst friends. It is the expression of an eternal elegance. 




Guide notes

15,5/20 - Revue du Vin de France 2018

Impeccable and a beautiful sapidity on the palate.

15/20 - Bettane & Desseauve 2018
15,5/20 - Gault & Millau 2018

Although it’s made up of the same grape varieties and from the same origins as the Extra Brut, this Brut Réserve plays more on a range of sophisticated fruit notes. Serve chilled but not ice-cold in order to best appreciate the elegant, fruity flavours which are enhanced (rather than masked) by the careful dosage. A beautiful champagne to share amongst friends.
