Consistently delicious and one of the world’s most coveted Rosé Champagnes. The palate unleashes a seductive array of summer fruits, mineral notes which adds complexity and leads to Billecart’s telltale sensual finish.
A glass of Krug simply stops you in your tracks. Arresting in its complexity and a wine that caresses the palate with layers of expansive, generous fruit. There is plenty here to satisfy both the intellectual and purely hedonistic senses as layers of fruit build effortlessly to the seamless, glorious finish. Clearly the list of superlatives could go on.
The ’02 Cuvée Nicolas François is made from solely Grand Cru fruit (60% Pinot Noir & 40% Chardonnay) and is one of the most beautiful Champagnes that I and many critics have tasted for many years. Some are comparing the ’02 to the great and legendary 1964, which is an extraordinary tribute. A Champagne that can be easily described as hauntingly beautiful as the balance between power and endless complexity is something very rare. The best wine from Billecart’s portfolio and will reward a further 10-15 years of cellaring (if you can resist).
