The Story

Named in honour of founding father Nicolas Francois, this fabulous wine is the finest expression of the House Style. A pale golden colour with a lively, fine bead. The nose shows very ripe fruit, floral notes and hints of warm brioche. The palate is fine, elegant and rich with wonderful balance and length. Cuvee Nicolas-Francois Billecart 1959 won first place in the Champagne of the Millennium 1999, out of 150 of the finest 20th century champagnes.

Written Notes

There was one more stop in my Great American Western Tour, except it wasn’t in America. It was in China. I mean Vancouver. We started at the home of The Winemaster. 1990 Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois had a buttery core with great strength and vigor. There was excellent acid and sauce in this boss (95).
