"The 2002 Brut Cuvée Nicolas François was disgorged in January 2015 with four grams per liter dosage, and it's showing superbly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet that mingles confit citrus, peach and dried papaya with nuances of iodine, brioche and honeycomb. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a rich and layered core that's underpinned by serious structure and tension, concluding with a long and precise finish. This is one of the finest wines Billecart has released in the last decade, and it is well worth seeking out. " Robert Parker 97/100

Sure, it is a better known Champagne producer, but is one of a few to remain family owned. Now in its sixth generation, it was formed in 1818 when Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon married.
