Billecart-Salmon 'Cuvee Louis Salmon' Blanc de Blancs 2007
This cuvée was name in tribute to Louis, Elisabeth Salmon’s brother, who was passionate about oenology and highly involved in from the earliest creation of the House. Originating from the best parcels of the Côte des Blancs, the Blanc de Blancs vintage is impressed with a purity and minerality.
On the eye: It has a crystalline appearance with a yellow gold hue, displaying a luminous and sparkling sheen effervescence.
On the nose: An elegant complexity mineral, floral and yellow flesh fruits (bergamot, white flowers and fresh pineapple). It displays a aromatic profile with an incredibly pure chalky character.
On the palate: There is a creamy, tactile sensation on the palate with a graceful finesse and a beautifully refreshing balance with natural flavors (citron zest, wild peaches and white pepper). This wine is powerful, accentuating an aromatic persistence with a long and majestic finish.
Its great potential and its balance revealing a remarkable, dignified finesse worthy of the most beautiful gustatory matches: whole Corrèze sweetbreads en cocotte or a creamy shellfish risotto.
