Vintage Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois 2002
2002 is hallowed by critics as the best vintage of the noughties, and possibly of a generation. Combine this vintage potential with the exceptional Billecart Salmon tribute to the house founder, it results in a wine you will not forget. The quantities left of the 2002 Nicholas Francois are now extremely limited due to demand for the vintage – achieving 98 points from James Suckling and 18.5/20 from Jancis Robinson. Due to this wine being in magnum, it will age much slower and to a much more complex wine when opened vs a 75cl bottle.
The colour of the wine is sparkling yellow gold with a fine bubble structure. This wine is vinified partially in oak casks, underpinning richness and subtlety, enhancing the complexity and layering of the delicious fruit flavours. Fine flavours of white peach, nectarine, plum and citrus zest are balanced by a precise tension in the wine. Delicious and complex! Serve at cellar temperature (11/12°C).
