Staff Pick Notes

Big house champagne can sometimes seem all brand packaging and no substance. Luckily, Billecart-Salmon's wines are made from 100% premier cru vines. This results in champagne with delicate bead, singing acidity, and clarity. An aroma and palate of juicy fruit, custard, and lemon zest. Billecart-Salmon has a high acid style intended for pairing with food but don't let that limit you. Drink this crystalline treat as an aperitif or as a satisfying nightcap. This isn't some commercialized bottle of bubbles in a gilded box. This is so much better.
