06 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvee Louis" Brut Blanc de Blancs

#1 Post by bradkaplan » May 23rd, 2019, 5:01 pm

Anyone tried this? Surprisingly few notes on CT, despite it being out for a little while now and some very nice critic reviews. I'm honestly not very familiar w B-S beyond the brut rose, so any intel appreciated.

This is a more oxidative style of Champagne than I like as I've tasted more Champagnes. I haven't tasted this since the 1999 & 2000 Vintages sometime around 2011 or 2012.

I haven’t had that one. The times I’ve splurged for premium B-S bottles (Nicolas Francois and especially Elisabeth Salmon), they’ve been mind blowingly awesome, though.

Thought this bottling was fantastic. Enough so that I bought four more. Bright deep pure chard. Did not get any of Kirk’s oxidative notes.
