Pinot from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne, meunier from the Vallée de la Marne and the southern slopes of Épernay; 86% grand cru, with an aim to grow to 90%; vinified in stainless steel tanks; 50–60% reserves; full malolactic fermentation; aged 32 months on lees (with a goal to reach 40 months by 2022); 8g/L dosage; dosage liqueur of 2008 chardonnay; DIAM; 1.5 million bottles (60% of production)
Billecart’s enchanting Brut Réserve upholds its aspiration of lofty freshness and elegance, even in the presence of impressive levels of reserve wines, now generously more than 50% of the blend, and impressive lees age, now 32 months. This cuvée is a captivating contradiction, dressing one of Champagne’s higher representations of meunier in one of the most delicate and graceful of attires. Tyson Stelzer
