Billecart-Salmon, 2004 Billecart-Salmon Vintage Extra Brut Grand Cru

89
"...opens with intimations of the fresh lemon and crabapple that then dominate a lively and invigorating palate. Hints of yeast and baked goods in the nose anticipate the subtle creaminess of texture achieved inner-mouth even with such liveliness and cut as otherwise characterizes this cuvee. Chalk and crushed stone impressions lend a touch of austerity to a penetratingly bright but otherwise understated finish. This rarified bottling may well take on more richness and complexity with a couple of years of bottle age and will probably be worth following for at least half a dozen. Billecart puts great stock by age-worthiness post- (as well as, of course, prior to) disgorgement.

Director Antoine Roland-Billecart and cellarmaster Francois Domi favor techniques designed to emphasize purity, polish, levity and acid-retention and the effects of such an approach were very evident in the two recent vintage-dated releases that I tasted this autumn."
–November 2013, David Schildknecht
