Billecart-Salmon, Grande Cuvée, Brut 1996

RRP £190

From the original disgorgement (2006) release, this Chardonnay-Pinot Noir blend is showing some maturity but remains beautifully integrated and well knit together. Subtle yet expressive nose of white flower and candied fruit with sweet vanilla. The fruit is ripe and intense, exhibiting lots of richness but well-incorporated with the bright acidity, impressive depth and freshness on the finish. Great length, vivacity and tension. A beautiful wine ready to drink now.
