Appearance: A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous bead of persistent fine bubbles.

Aroma: There is an olfactory impact due to the richness of harmonious expressions (dry fruits, fresh citrus and white fruits) coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. A defined aromatic undertone which expresses the mature complexity linked to the vinification in oak barrels.

Palate: The caressing and refreshing texture enhances the creamy sensation, dominated by a beautiful bracing vivacity. A burst of flavours (notes of grilled brioche, toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity which is a mark of the great wines of Champagne.

Our notes

Chef’s recipe, By the chief Cédric Vongeritchen, Perry Restaurant, New-York: PAN SEARED BLACK SEA BASS AND GRILLED MAITAKE MUSHROOM.

A reference for pleasure and emotion because of its remarkable finesse. Its strength of character and honesty make an ideal accompaniment to seafood and poultry. This wine is ideally served at cellar temperature 10°.

The Australian
"Fermented in barrique below 16C, left on lees in barrel, lees stirred for six months, malolactic fermentation prevented. Split equally between chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, 66% from '07, the remainder equal amounts of '06 and '05 reserve wines. A silken net around the fruit flavours, hints of vanilla, spice and toast; exceptional finish and aftertaste."

James Halliday


Producers notes

Founded in 1818 by Nicolas François Billecart and his spouse Elizabeth Salmon in Mareuil-sur-Ay, this is one of the few houses that have remained in the same family. Seven generations on, the house is led by the very talented Francois Roland-Billecart. They espouse three principal aims: “finesse, balance and elegance” and the complete range of wines is testament to this.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
