This was one of the bottles we picked up on a booze cruise to France. It cost there in euros what it costs here in pounds.
Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Billecart-Salmon
A very elegant nose of apples, toast and yeast. There is some minerality there too, so this smells quite complex. The palate is beautiful, with apple fruit, fine acidity and great length. The mousse is very fine. It is light and refined, but not lacking depth of flavour or complexity. This is quite lovely. An excellent non-vintage fizz that is great to drink now, but I am sure will age very well.
