    February 21, 2020 - Wow. I am old. When I was looking for a bottle of bubbles to open while making paella, I stumbled across this wine which we received from my wife's cousins a few years ago. Well, after popping and tasting, I realized that we were gifted this wine nearly eleven years ago. Yikes. All good, however, since I prefer my Blanc de Blancs with some age. A solid ripe wheat color in the glass with a golden delicious apple (perhaps honey-dipped) a go-go on the nose. The palate is bight and decadent with a touch of sweetness on top of oodles of caramelized apple, tart lemon, and baked-in brioche. Yowza. I have stated countless times that Blanc de Blancs is far from my preferred style of champagne. Unless it has some age, which this clearly does. Whoa. thedrunkencyclist.com

    February 9, 2020 - A nice fresh Champagne in àn understated style. Very food friendly but it’s too expensive for what it is

    November 18, 2019 - Very consistent with my previous notes, but then being consistent is one of BS’s strengths.

    November 14, 2019 - Billecart-Salmon Tasting (Dan & Mila’s): Vivid, fresh, laser sharp but with subtlety on the finish. No oak. Excels with air.

    (NV Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru) Like the straight non-vintage, this too is showing a lot of sulphur. It was also served very cold. The palate, though, is quite well composed. It does not have a huge depth at present, although it is very firm and fresh, showing some attractive white fruit character. Nice peppery acidity. Difficult to judge, but it has promise.
