Billecart-Salmon, Nicolas Francois 2002


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

Billecart-Salmon is a medium-sized champagne house in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, France. Founded in 1818 with the marriage of Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon, it is one of the few to remain family owned. The Cuvée Nicolas-Francois Billecart 1959 won first place in the Champagne of the Millennium 1999, out of 150 of the finest 20th century Champagnes. A magnum of the winning champagne later sold for £3,300. Billecart-Salmon was ranked tenth among major Champagne houses by Antoine Gerbelle writing for La Revue du vin de France. La Revue du vin de France’s Guide Vert awards Billecart-Salmon two stars out of three.



Anne Krebiehl MW

Subtle nose of lemon-spiked raw pastry and a harmonious palate of incredible finesse. Scented and perfumed notes of lemon balm, shortbread and lemon zest fill the mind and senses. Utter elegance and happiness follows.

Tom Hewson

This continues to make its case as the top Cuvée Nicolas François of recent times, showing brilliant harmony and balance with no signs of slowing down at 21 years of age. Theres the richness of truffle honey on buttered toast, pineapple tarte tatin and cooked apricots, with fresh and tart strawberry Pinot fragrance still intact. A beautiful toasty citrus focus on the palate, which boasts a serene, perfectly shaped intensity. Entering a fine phase for drinking over the next five to 10 years. Made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, with 19% barrel fermentation. Disgorged in 2019.
