Final Billecart-Salmon SPECIAL offer for 2022

Global demand for Champagne exceeds supply driven by substantial growth globally, particularly in the U.S. Add to that the increasing costs from the vineyard to the glass...

1. All popular Champagne is going up in price
2. Allocations from those Houses to the NZ market are being cut!

Christmas is 4-months away however our allocations of the immensely popular Billecart-Salmon Brut have been dramatically slashed and price increases are coming. We have drawn down our total allocation for the remainder of 2022 (fraction of normal) it is being released for Fine Wine Delivery’s 25th Birthday in August – at $84.99 bottle while stocks last. Importantly... these are fresh stocks.

Billecart-Salmon is a 200-year-old family-owned House and one of just four 10/10 Champagne producers in Tyson Stelzer’s Champagne guide. Almost all the 23 Michelin Restaurants in Paris serve Billecart-Salmon by the glass. It is a favourite with Fine Wine Delivery Champagne customers and our Festive Season allocation normally satisfies everyone’s needs and gets us through until Christmas.

Not so this year... our (everyone’s) allocation has been slashed due to global demand exceeding supply for most popular Champagne Houses. In the case of Billecart-Salmon this is exacerbated by the House deciding to increase the time aging on lees in bottle from 3 to 4 years (big budget commercial supermarket brands are circa 2-years) – this will additionally increase the complexity and finesse of this already magnificent Champagne. Consequently, global demand for Billecart-Salmon Brut is now unquenchable – demand exceeds supply.

Everywhere in the world, Billecart-Salmon is celebrated as special Champagne. The House has preserved ancestral vinification methods handed down from generation to generation over 200-years and constantly perfects them. Unique to the House is the technique of cold settling in stainless steel tanks achieving a longer fermentation at lower temperature. Slowing the ferment creates delicate ethereal aromas and allows the fruit to be more purely expressed. With 4-years lees aging in bottle Billecart-Salmon Brut sets a lofty standard for other NV Champagnes... which few of them emulate. It is electrifyingly pure, elegant and seductive throughout the palate.

The Champagne...
Pure, enticing aromas of lemon blossom, subtle almond, spring flowers and fresh white fruit. A delicate, vivacious palate of fine citrus and nutty/bready flavours set in caressing creamy bubbles, building to a delicious and complex crescendo. Seductively, pure and elegant with searching length... its quality is unmistakable! Enjoy fresh... and don’t wait for an occasion to celebrate, let this gorgeous Brut Réserve be your celebration.

With dramatically reduced supply we will not have any Billecart-Salmon to offer this Festive Season... only those who buy now will be able to enjoy this amazing Champagne over the Festive Season. We are offering fresh stocks of our final allocation for 2022 as a 25th Birthday special on a first come basis at $84.99 bottle. At Christmas... Billecart-Salmon will be almost impossible to get... and some prices are already creeping over the $100 mark.

Merry Christmas in advance, JEFF

Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve

Billecart-Salmon spends 4-years aging on lees in bottle... double that of the big budget commercial supermarket brands. Combine that with delicate vinification and you have a Champagne of rare complexity, body and delicacy.
