Billecart-Salmon, 2002 Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart, Grand Cru

98
"A very composed Champagne with plenty of still fresh lemon and white cherry fruits on offer. There's impressive clarity, power and richness here. The nose has candied peach, strawberry, white cherry and grilled nuts. Very flavorsome palate with pastry flavors adding savory notes to the stone fruits and citrus. Toasted almonds and chalky minerals define the long finish. Still so young and powerful! Drink now."

Billecart-Salmon, 2002 Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart, Grand Cru

"Always the finest wine of the house and particularly special in the ever-youthful 2002, which has so much in reserve that it should age gracefully to 2030 or beyond: one of the greatest wines of a great year. Latent power, density without heaviness, supremely elegant, all finesse. With the best roast turbot on the bone, you couldn’t wish for anything better."

"A mesmerizing, thrilling Champagne, the 2002 Cuvée Nicolas Francois Billecart is a great example of the vintage at its best. Silky and racy on the palate, yet a bit more restrained than many wines of the year. The Nicolas Francois Billecart remainds vivid and remarkably nuanced. Brioche, apricot jam, wild flowers and honey are some of the many notes that blossom as the Cuvée Nicolas Francois Billecart shows off its voluptuous personality. The 2002 is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay."
