"The 2000 Brut Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart impresses for its sheer purity and focus. Nothing is out of place in this beautifully delineated, precise wine. Cool, minty notes add lift, yet the 2000 is rather reticent at this stage and appears to need further bottle age. Still, its textural finesse is impossible to miss." (Nov 2011)
"Bright gold. Intensely perfumed scents of dried pear, nectarine, peach skin and musky flowers, with a bright mineral overtone. Deep in orchard fruit and citrus flavors but there's a weightless quality to this Champagne that's really intriguing. Very pure and precise on the finish, with the peach and floral qualities echoing. This would be superb with simple fish preparations." (Dec 2010)

"Bright, focused acidity drives lightly smoked flavors of candied currant and blackberry and patisserie apple, with hints of ground espresso, cumin and crystallized honey. A mineral note threads through the refined texture and lingers on the rich finish." (Dec 2011)
