Billecart-Salmon Champagne Blanc de Blancs Cuvee Louis NO BOX 2007
95pts Wine Enthusiast – 2007 vintage
“With 50% vinification in oak, this Champagne has a deliciously smooth character while keeping the steely edge of Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. Its texture is such that, while ready to drink, it could age much further, giving the possibility of a fine maturity.”
94pts Wine Spectator– 2007 vintage
The velvety texture of this finely knit Champagne ripples on your palate, highlighting flavors of ginger-infused pastry cream, glazed apricot and lemon curd, with a rich hint of hazelnut. Clean-cut, with mouthwatering acidity defining the salty, mineral-laced finish. Disgorged July 2018. Drink now through 2030.
95pts Wine & Spirits– 2007 vintage
This is Chardonnay from three grand cru villages of the Cote des Blancs: Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Cramant. A small percentage of the base wine was made in oak barrels, upping the wines creamy intensity, adding a hint of butterscotch to its vibrant lemon blossom richness. It’s an impressive 2007 that keeps giving beautiful fruity flavors, spicy, cool and lasting.
