This cuvée has been elaborated from the four Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs : Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger.
This cuvée is a blend of two different years revealing the special quality of the Chardonnay. Its complexity, its great vinosity and the surprisingly fresh finish is particularly appreciated by the most informed wine lovers.
- Appearance: The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its golden colour.
- Aroma: A pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of white flesh fruits.
- Palate: The creamy sensation of the bubbles combines with buttered brioche and mineral aromas. It has a persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.
“The first time I tasted a cuvée from Maison Billecart-Salmon, it was on my 20th birthday. A day that I will never forget! More often than not I taste the Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru cuvée from magnum. The 100% Chardonnay fully reveals itself in this format. I like the mineral aspect which is taut, vivid and with a slight richness. A perfect balance between delicacy and elegance with a finish that is strengthened by the minerality. In Saint Placide, we propose a smoked salt turbot. The natural flavour of the turbot and the contrast with the smoked salt is revealed by the finesse and the persistence on the palate. The harmony is evident with this exceptional cuvée. For me, any place is perfect for tasting the Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru. From the very first sip, you know that it’s going to be a great experience in an ideal location and especially if you’re in good company on an island off the coast of Saint-Malo, for a simple picnic away from it all except for the pleasures of that exact instant. A moment that is just magic." - Luc Mobihan, Chef at the Restaurant Saint Placide, Saint-Malo
