O Produtor, tasting note published in October 30th 2019

Appearance: An ultra-delicate effervescence which translates into an abundance of elegant bubbles. It is sparkling and elegant with a luminous yellow gold hue with glints of green. Aroma: A very pure and mineral intensity with an uncommon typicity, releasing notes of brioche, fresh butter and lemony citrus fruits. A distinguished and subtle realm that delicately evolves with a remarkable finesse. Palate: A creamy sensation with a chalky and meringue texture, associated with nuances of fresh almonds and citron zest. A smoothness of great class which is chiselled and persistent.

Billecart-Salmon

It all started here in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, marking the creation of their Champagne House. This has been a family story since the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist, getting involved in the creation of the wines. Thus, over 7 generations, each member of the family has endeavoured to continue the family tradition, staying faithful to the same motto: “Give priority to quality, strive for excellence”. The Clos Saint-Hilaire is a single parcel where the vines, soil and subsoil are carefully tended with respect for the environment. Several years ago, Billecart-Salmon decided to return to ancestral champagne-making methods in the Clos Saint-Hilaire by using work horses and sheep. This method of maintaining the soil and tending the vines increases porosity and biodiversity: the roots grow deep and the minerals they draw from the soil foster the growth of smaller, more concentrated grapes, revealing the terroir’s typical flavour. The Clos Saint-Hilaire has created an exceptional champagne which is named after the patron saint of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Made exclusively from Pinot Noir vinified in oak casks, it develops an outstanding purity. For each vintage, there is a limited release of between 3,500 to 5,500 individually numbered bottles.
