The Story

The Brut Réserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. Balance and harmony combine together in this light and subtle champagne. Its blend is made up of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier sourced from the very best sites of the Champagne region. It is the ideal partner to delight your guests on every occasion, both as an aperitif and throughout the entirety of a dinner.

It’s now more than 20 years since I started working with Maison Billecart-Salmon. We often share great times together – they are as much familial as they are professional. They share a family history and it’s a wonderful story between the two family Houses! The Brut Réserve is a cuvée which is both delicate whist at the same time exhibiting a great finesse. Ideal as an aperitif or paired with a dish that is light and refined and doesn’t overpower the wine. I’m thinking of a dish that we serve on our menu at the restaurant: crab spiced with ginger and a creamy courgette sauce which is topped with Daurenki caviar. The pairing is subtle and the dish perfectly accompanies this ethereal cuvée which exhibits a great finesse. For me, the Brut Réserve cuvée is the perfect synonym for pleasure and excellence at any time of the day! A moment of joy and a light-hearted accompaniment to everyday celebrations to liven up all the best memories in life for all the simple yet precious times that we share with family or amongst friends. It is the expression of an eternal elegance.

Chef, Maison Rostang**, Paris
