One of several instances in this portfolio where you can obtain 100% Grand Cru fizz at an entry-level price. Compare to Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, if you care to! This is 50% 2001 and 25% each of '99 and '00; about 80% Pinot Noir. This is just fantastic Champagne. Even for Billiot this cuvée has remarkable pretty fragrance. It's above all the length that impresses; there's an extension of the mid-palate that seems to clamp a death-grip on the soft palate, increasing intensity as it goes. Cherry, mirabelle, puff pastry, fraise de bois; essentially perfect Champagne, elegant and creamy and long and gracious and full of saffron and confiture.

A 75-25 blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, like almost all of Billiot’s wines, this does not undergo malolactic conversion, creating a powerfully structured, muscular wine. The fine bubbles add to the briskness of its mouthwatering red fruit, its fruit-skin depth making the finish rich. Pour it with hamachi kama (grilled yellowtail collar).

A lush, creamy style enlivened by a spine of mouthwatering acidity, this offers a finely knit range of fresh bread dough, crème de cassis, star anise and candied ginger flavors. The finish is clean-cut and lingering, echoing a rich tang of salted almond.
