Wine AdvocateBased on the 2015 vintage and disgorged with nine grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Réserve contains fully 55% reserve wines and is showing very well, offering up complex aromas of warm bread, crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and charming but lively, with an elegantly textural attack, a fleshy core of fruit and lively balancing acids.
Wine SpectatorA minerally version, layering flavors of poached pear, slivered almond, black cherry and preserved lemon on the finely detailed mousse, firmed by a frame of steely acidity. Drink now.
Wine EnthusiastThis producer's nonvintage cuvée showcases a blend of grapes from all the regions of Champagne. Rich with white stone fruit, it balances ripe acidity and a taut texture. This complex wine is ready to drink.
