Billecart Salmon 2002 Cuvee Nicolas Francois Brut Champagne

The 2002 Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart is outrageously beautiful. The ripeness of the Chardonnay is front and center in a Champagne that delivers the goods, big-time. An infusion of apricot, orange peel, crème brûlée, chamomile, hazelnut and honey give the 2002 its racy, exotic personality. I enjoy it most with bottle age, but the 2002 is undeniably beautiful right now. The 2002 is a stunning NFB. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne and 40% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, done partially in oak (20%). Dosage is 4 grams per liter.   96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous August 2020

Tasted on 10/2017  This has buttercream, citrus, light stone fruits and early suggestion of nuttiness. The palate is moderate with cream, some light spice and a hit of citrus on the finish. Good acidity and a great vintage D&M Tasting Notes

Tasting: This generous and powerful vintage, characterized by the elegant viscosity of a complex and mature wine, will be served at cellar temperature (11/12°C). It will expose the flavours of a beautiful creamy, roasted poultry or a delicious slice of milk-fed veal with mushrooms. Winery Notes

With its ripe fruits, rich texture and layers of toast, this is a great wine. It shows the quality of the great 2002 vintage brilliantly. It’s complex and concentrated with an array of mature fruit flavors that combine to a structured whole. It will improve with age, so drink this great Champagne through 2025 and perhaps longer.96 Points Wine Enthusiast, December 2013.
