The Champagne Billecart-Salmon, Le Clos St Hilaire 1999 is a noble, elegant expression and an extremely complex, vinous impact on the nose (candied citrus fruit, crushed hazelnut and almond, mild tobacco). Develops with a resplendently honeyed expansiveness featuring nuts and oriental spices. An ample texture with the patina of oak ageing and hints of yellow fruit in syrup (Williams pear and fresh quince) and panettone. A richness overflowing with flavours (roasted pineapple, puffed buckwheat and precious woods). The generosity of this wine transports the finish to rooty, mineral realms, with an attractive saline character. The Clos Saint-Hilaire is a 1ha single-vineyard with 100% pinot noir. A Blanc de Noirs cuvée, vinified in oak casks with a limited release of 1,000 individually numbered bottles.
