Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs 2004
22nd April 2014
The noble elegance of a defined and mineral Chardonnay. Its natural balance reflects a harmonious model of a blend of the best Grands Crus sites of the Cote des Blancs: Chouilly for its finesse, Avize for its power and Mesnil-sur-Oger for its structure and longevity.
A crystalline appearance with a golden yellow robe allowing a persistent and vibrant sparkle to arise.
The first impression characterises itself through the minerality and the subtle delicacy of the complexity of the fruit (fresh butter, meringue cookie and citron peel). A noble and distinguished aromatic expression from a mature Chardonnay.
A creamy tactile sensation with a remarkable finesse offering an exquisite texture with a distinguished smoothness. A beautiful refreshing balance with a nutty taste (raw almonds, ground hazelnut) associated to the personality of a great vintage. This wine, powerful and emphatic, prolongs its finish to a chalky persistence with majestic length.
