Billecart-Salmon : Cuvée Louis Salmon Blanc de Blancs 2006

The minerality and aromatic expression of a vintage Blanc de Blancs Champagne

The producer

Since its creation in 1818 by the married couple, Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, having preserved all of its know-how and demand for high-quality cuvées for 7 generations.

The vineyard

The Billecart-Salmon vineyard covers 100 hectares from Côte des Blancs to the Reims mountain. The vines are cultivated and cared for in a traditional manner so that the wine resembles real fruit and to reflect the quality of the Champagne terroir.

The wine

Made from the finest terroirs of 3 Grands Crus in the Côte des Blancs (Chouilly, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cramant), this Cuvée Louis Salmon Blanc de Blancs pays tribute to Elisabeth Salmon's brother. According to research carried out by a passionate historian at the request of the estate, archives have established that Louis Salmon would have contributed to the elaboration of the house’s first cuvées.

Vinification and ageing

Billecart-Salmon's 2006 Cuvée Louis Salmon Blanc de Blancs was aged on lees for a period of 9 to 10 years.

The blend

Chardonnay (100%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2006 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis Salmon derives from old vines holdings in the same villages that inform Billecart's non-vintage Blanc de Blanc, and it has seen 11 years sur lattes. Wafting from the glass with aromas of warm bread, blanched almonds, dried citrus and fresh pear, it's medium to full-bodied, gourmand and fleshy, with tangy acids and an enveloping core of fruit that lends it a vinous profile, underpinned by lively acids and concluding with a tangy, saline finish. This is a very fine rendition of this cuvée, formerly known as the Prestige Blanc de Blancs.
