Staff Pick Notes

For a house known for their high end cuvées and an equally stellar NV Rosé, Billecart-Salmon's, lush and creamy, demi-sec flies low under the radar. It's an equal blend of the 3 traditional Champagne grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. The higher dosage level allows for an extra level of complexity and expands an already abundant number of pairing options. Enjoy with rich pork and fois gras dishes, or a curried roast chicken. Thinking dessert? Go with a decadent, aromatic cheese plate. Not a foodie? (Heaven forbid!) Enjoy it by itself!
