Billecart-Salmon Extra Brut 2004

Billecart-Salmon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Extra Brut 2004 is composed of 40% Pinot Meunier, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. Dosage is 0 grams per liter.

Billecart Salmon incorporates a double debourbage process. Solids in fresh juice settle to clarify the juice, then a second cold settling occurs at about 40 degrees Fahrenheit for a minimum of 48 hours. This process ensures the finest juice will be used for fermentation. The fermentation process typically takes place over 3 or more weeks at temperature not to exceed approximately 57 degrees Fahrenheit (typical fermentation at most houses is 1 week at about 68 degrees Fahrenheit).
