TN: NV Henri Billiot Brut Reserve

Post  Cris Whetstone on Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:42 pm

  • N.V. H. Billiot Champagne Brut Reserve Grand Cru - France, Champagne, Ambonnay, Champagne (1/19/2009)
    Lovely balance and richness really make this a step up from the previous release. Had a nice buttery quality towards the finish. Elegant peach and cherry fruits with good acidity. Lovely wine. Tons of lees in this bottle.

Drank this over two nights last week. The $11 price hike late last year was painful but even at $50 this is still an excellent value. This release seems more balanced and and all around excellent than the previous release which while great was more about red fruits and richness.

LOL! How the heck do you pluralize 'lie' anyways? Or is it 'lee' in English?

I think you're looking for the word "lees".
