Critical Acclaim

James Suckling 94 - Superfine citrus-tinged aromas here that give way to more rich stone fruits then red berries; the purity is striking. Minerally accents like crushed rocks, plus dried wild flowers too. The palate's boldly flavored, the concentration is impressive and the energetic drive of acidity is a thrill - long strawberry and red cherry flavors amid some gentle biscuity, red-fruited notes to close. Drink now.

Wine.com 91 - Almost too puckering on the palate, but pay no attention to that, just order a couple dozen raw oysters with plenty of fresh lemons and the non-vintage Billecart-Salmon Extra Brut is sure to perform. This is one of the very best bruts from Champagne.

Wine Spectator 91 - An elegant version, layering a smoky mineral note and mouthwatering acidity with the creamy palate's white raspberry and pear fruit, fleur de sel and lemon peel flavors. Lightly spiced, lingering finish. Drink now through 2018.

Wine Enthusiast 90 - This is the driest wine in an already-dry range of Champagnes. With no dosage, it is crisp, tight and mineral. The high proportion of Pinot Meunier in the blend brings out the the flavors of white fruits and the crisp texture. The bottling is still young and will be better from 2017.


Intense pale and gold colors are enhanced by pure brightness. The mousse is energetic with abundant ultra fine bubbles. Complex and seductive aromas of dried fruits and brioche combined with floral notes. This is further enhanced by the subtle charm of lemon verbena. A precise, elegant and aromatic freshness accentuated by the expression of the quality of the composition. On the palate, there are charming biscuity flavors and white fruits, with a full and harmonious minerality resulting in a sensational balanced finish.
