"The 2000 Brut Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart impresses for its sheer purity and focus. Nothing is out of place in this beautifully delineated, precise wine. Cool, minty notes add lift, yet the 2000 is rather reticent at this stage and appears to need further bottle age. Still, its textural finesse is impossible to miss." Wine Advocate (94 Points)
Riper and richer than the 2002 Cristal, this wine has a substantial structure to hold its sensuous, pearlike fruit in place. Tropical notes of guava contribute to the vinous impression, as does the foresty mushroom savor. Haute couture to drink now, this will develop deeper complexities with age.

Hints of toasted brioche and quince paste add rich layers of flavor to tangy green apple, white peach, smoke, vanilla and fresh ginger notes, finding beautiful harmony with the racy acidity and finely detailed texture. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported.Wine Spectator 94 Points
