Billecart-Salmon Nicolas Francois Billecart 1999

Billecart-Salmon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Nicolas Francois Billecart 1999 is composed of a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a portion aged in neutral oak barrels. Billecart-Salmon typically gives many of their vintage brut champagnes a dosage of 5 grams per liter or less and often ages its prestige cuvees from 8 to 10 years on lees prior to disgorgement.

The House uses a technique called double debourbage. Solids in fresh juice settle to clarify the juice, then a second 'cold' settling occurs at about 40 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 48 hours. This process ensures the purest of juice will be used for fermentation. The fermentation process typically takes place over 3 to 4 weeks at a temperature not to exceed approximately 57 degrees Fahrenheit (typical fermentation at most houses is 1 week at about 68 degrees Fahrenheit).
