DECANTER MAGAZINE REVIEW:

A fine straw-gold colour with great finesse of bubble flow and mousse. Joyful aromas of apple blossom and ripe pear. A full, defined palate demonstrates richness that will help to give this a long life in the cellar.

JAMES HALLIDAY RATING: 95
JAMES HALLIDAY REVIEW:

An uncommon blend of 40% pinot meunier and 30% each of pinot noir and chardonnay, with 40% reserve wines, fermented in a mix of tank and use of aged oak barrels. Deliberate choice of meunier is the key to its drink any time soon style, which combining elegance, finesse and great length.

JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 91
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Plenty of ripe strawberries and wild raspberries on the nose here. Really attractive and vibrant in the mouth with fresh wild strawberries. It also shows a fleshy, fresh-fruit texture.
ROBERT PARKER RATING: 90
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with nine grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Réserve contains fully 55% reserve wines and is showing very well, offering up complex aromas of warm bread, crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and charming but lively, with an elegantly textural attack, a fleshy core of fruit and lively balancing acids.
STEVE TANZAR RATING: 90
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Pale gold. Fresh peach, pear and nectarine on the nose, with a complicating note of white flowers. Fleshy, plush and ripe, with strong peach and ripe pear flavors in a more powerful and less restrained style than last year's release. Firms up on the finish, picking up a mineral note and showing very good balance and length.
WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 92
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: The tiny mousse tells a lot about the quality of this impressive Champagne. It is quite full in style, with flavors of white currants and a rich, but still bone-dry aftertaste. It is a perfect food Champagne, with structure and a good tension between richness and elegance.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 91
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Aromatic and spicy, with cedar, honey and ginger notes matching a firm structure and lean, intense character. Fine length. Drink now.
Appearance of straw yellow, stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse. Maturity touched with floral freshness for this cuvée that breathes aromas of fresh fruit and ripe pears. On the palate a full and accurate flavor combined with a fine freshness and a rich bouquet bear witness to the ageing of this cuvée in the House’s traditional cellars. The BILLECART-SALMON Brut Réserve is the ideal partner for every occasion. It is perfect as an aperitif and can be enjoyed with a wide variety of dishes.
