The Thief

Billecart Salmon Le Rendez-Vous Meunier Extra Brut No 2 NV

Billecart Salmon Le Rendez-Vous Meunier Extra Brut No 2 NV

In its continuous quest for excellence, Billecart-Salmon is constantly experimenting with new methods to further improve the quality of its wines. A range has been born from the fruit of this work to offer you a unique tasting experience. Precise, New, Bold, each new release will epitomize an exceptional terroir and a champagne grape variety as well as the art of a meticulous winemaking.

Le Rendez Vous No.2 takes us to two historic terroirs of the Montagne de Reims: Ambonnay and Verzenay, where the Pinot Noir varietal imprints a distinctive identity in the wine. This is a careful selection process based on the purity of the fruit, the balance of flavors and a low dosage.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: A distinctive sparkling golden hue and a glistening stream of fine bubbles.

On the nose: A beautiful aroma with floral sensations (cherry blossom and violet) with hints of biscuit, a touch of honey and raw butter. The citrus zest and juiciness of this wine will awaken you senses. A highly delicate blend where the character of the Pinot Noir subtly reveals its terroirs’ DNA.

On the palate: A generous textured and tactile mouthfeel with intense fruity notes of candied lemon paste, tangerine and licorice. The mid-palate evolves towards a chalky and slightly peppery tastes. The finish highlights a refreshing minerality with tangy flavors of fresh raspberries.

PAIRING

This second rendez-vous reveals the identity of a pure Pinot Noir from exceptional terroirs. Served at cellar temperature (10/12°), it will pair wonderfully with a Ceviche of Gambero Rosso (prawns), or crab and its iodine creamy sauce.
