Bottle Description

A new vintage cuvée has been released by Champagne Billecart-Salmon. Extra Brut 2007 is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir, sourced from Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and the Montagne de Reims, and 25% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay (from Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly and Vertus). It has a dosage of 4g/l. The 2007 vintage was mixed, beginning with unusually high temperatures in April and early, but uneven, flowering. A cold, wet summer led to patchy ripening – with high humidity making rot a threat – though sunshine in late August meant that many houses harvested earlier than usual. The cool summer is reflected in this Extra Brut style, making for a very dry, rather lean, palate – mineral and clean, with fresh citrus and a touch of salinity on the finish that would pair well with oysters. On the nose, freshly sliced lemon aromas are backed by hints of candied peel and marzipan.

Billecart-Salmon's intense and vinous 2007 Vintage blends 75% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne (Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Aÿ) with 25% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs villages Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly and Vertus. Vinified in stainless steel, the bouquet indicates pure, ripe and refined fruit with delicate brioche and morel scents as well as fine chalky and super discreet marzipan and nougat notes. Full-bodied and very intense in its fruit flavors, this is a rich, persistent, pure, just ripe and refined 2007 with a finish that is remarkably fresh but not fully round. Disgorged as Extra Brut in December 2017, tasted in November 2018.
