The freshness of the cuvée Nicolas François Billecart develops all
its aromatic complexity - aromas of white flowers mixed with subtle notes of brioche. The balance between richness and persistence is the hallmark of this accomplished wine. The perfect blend of grands crus from which it is made gives it a lovely freshness on the
palate, developing a wide range of aromas.
This vintage will enhance the flavors of poultry or white meat.
"A wine that strikes a great balance between its intense fruitiness and a pure steely character. It makes it a dry Champagne, with the richness of a great wine. It has weight, intensity and several years more aging."
"The 2000 Brut Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart impresses for its sheer purity and focus. Nothing is out of place in this beautifully delineated, precise wine. Cool, minty notes add lift, yet the 2000 is rather reticent at this stage and appears to need further bottle age. Still, its textural finesse is impossible to miss."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright gold. Intensely perfumed scents of dried pear, nectarine, peach skin and musky flowers, with a bright mineral overtone. Deep in orchard fruit and citrus flavors but there's a weightless quality to this Champagne that's really intriguing. Very pure and precise on the finish, with the peach and floral qualities echoing. This would be superb with simple fish preparations."
