Review H. Billiot N.V. Champagne "Essence de Billiot" Extra Brut, Ambonnay
H. Billiot N.V. Champagne "Essence de Billiot" Extra Brut, Ambonnay
($216.99 Incl. tax)
Super rare, 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir bottled with no dosage, only 600 bottles made. Disgorged in March 2022.
This is the first time we've been able to offer this ultra-rare bottling from the Grand Cru Pinot Noir region near Ambonnay (600 bottles is the equivalent of 50 12-bottle cases), an attempt by winemaker Laetitia Billiot to capture the pure essence of Billiot Pinot without a secondary dosage. "Medium to full-bodied, vinous and muscular, it's taut and tightly wound, with tangy acids and a chalky, bone-dry finish that's a little austere at this early stage."--RobertParker.com I'd love to be around 20 years from now to experience its development.
