Billecart Salmon Brut NV. Pale gold. Fresh peach, pear and nectarine on the nose, with a complicating note of white flowers. Fleshy, plush and ripe, with strong peach and ripe pear flavors in a more powerful and less restrained style than last year’s release. Firms up on the finish, picking up a mineral note and showing very good balance and length

Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois 2006 A hint of struck flint reduction makes way for the icy brightness of grapefruit zest, lemon, white peach, then the warmth of figs, and later, yellow summer fruits. A decade in the cellar has set down layers of toast and nuts, even wood spice. Refreshing acidity takes time to uncoil, and minerality rises slowly, super fine, confident and taut, surging on the finish in a cascade of chalk that lingers, undeterred, for minutes.

Delamere Cuvee N.V TasmaniaDelamere Cuvee N.V Tasmania
The Non-Vintage Sparkling Cuvée is a blend of vintages with the majority coming from 2014 vintage, with 30% of reserve wine adding complexity and depth. 2014 was a warmer season, with ripe flavours being achieved early in the season, at low sugar levels. 2014 yields were particularly small, giving wonderful concentration of flavour.
As with all of Delamere’s sparkling wines, the Cuvée NV is made by the traditional method with an average four years lees time. The assemblage was focused on retaining the fresh fruit characteristics whilst balancing the autolytic and more mature flavours.
This wine showcases many of the elements that make a non-vintage sparkling wine so appealing. The maturity of the older wine brings a richness and depth, which combines beautifully with the fresh apple, citrus and stone fruit flavours of the younger wines. The Cuvée NV has flavours of fresh bread, nuts and leatherwood honey and a lingering and complex finish. Too good to save just for special occasions!

DEVAUX House is at the heart of a family saga which begins with the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux shortly before the middle of the 19th century. The Devaux House was then managed by three inspiring women who led the family winery with remarkable energy and talent in equal measure. The first woman, Claude-Joseph Devaux (born Ducray), widowed at 39 years old in 1843, founded in 1846 and managed the house “Maison Vve A. Devaux″ in Epernay with her son François-Auguste. His wife, Augusta-Maria Herbin, was to become the second “Devaux widow″ following his death in 1879. She was in charge of the winery until 1895. The DEVAUX brand quickly became successful. By the turn of the century, DEVAUX was exporting 75% of its production. Then in 1907, following the death of Charles-Auguste Devaux, Marguerite Marie-Louise, the third “Devaux widow” born Hussenot, took over the reins and managed the winery until her death in 1951 at the age of 80, thus concluding an extraordinary saga of “Champagne widows″.
She was succeeded by her two sons.
