Visual

A lovely colour of sparkling yellow gold veiled in luminous golden reflections. This scintillating and crystal-like visual perception gives to the effervescence a rising of fine-cut bubbles.

Palate

The balance of a tension controlled by the blossoming of the wine (seeded and stone fruit, citrus fruit, warm madeleine) and embodied by the line of noble resinous flavours.

Nose

Fine malted notes associated with orchard fruit (white peach, nectarine, Lorraine plum) refined by the purity of the complex mandarin zest aromas.

Winemaking

Traditional method.

In cea mai importanta competitie de Champagne realizata pana in prezent - Degustarea Mileniului - primele 2 clasate au fost Nicolas-Francois Billecart 1959 si 1961. Competitia organizata in 1999 de Richard Julin - detinatorul recordului mondial la Champagne degustate (peste 10.000 in 2010) - a inclus vinuri din recoltele perioadei 1900-2000.

Calitatea vinurilor a crescut si mai mult intre anii 1976 si 1985, cand au fost inlocuite tancurile mari in care se realiza fermentarea si au fost instalate 60 de tancuri mici, ce permit vinificarea separata pe parcele individuale de vie. Acest lucru ingaduie o mai mare atentie asupra cupajului final, avand control total asupra calitatii fiecarui vin care intra in componenta finala.

 

"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."95 Points Wine Enthusiast 

"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."94 Points The Wine Advocate
