Billecart Salmon Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart 2002 75cl
"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.
