Established by Nicolas François in 1818, Billecart Salmon is known within France and around the globe for fashioning the most elegant Champagnes, fully rounded Cuvées with the cleanest palate and eternal, seemingly ageless styling. Non-vintage French fizz does not get better than this. This stock has just arrived in the country ensuring these are crisp fresh bubbles further enhancing this great offer (I sound like a car salesman). Seriously, anyone in the market for Champagne, Billecart represents the best value buy. So whilst the Jones's drink Moet and Veuve and the like, treat yourself to this treasure.

Reviews of Billecart Salmon Brut Réserve 2002
We had it with snacks.
I had tried Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve with some wine enthusiasts.
Very light flavour. Smells of yeast and bakery. Blueberry flavour.
I definetely wouldn't pair this wine with fish dishes.
