Non-vintage French fizz does not get better than this. This stock has just arrived in the country ensuring these are crisp fresh bubbles further enhancing this great offer (I sound like a car salesman). Seriously, anyone in the market for Champagne, Billecart represents the best value buy. So whilst the Jones's drink Moet and Veuve and the like, treat yourself to this treasure.

Near-clinical winemaking techniques, closer to the New World than traditional Champagne, produce a distinctive but extremely user-friendly wine style. Crystal clear lemon and ripe apple aromas are repeated on the crisp, almost crunchy, palate through to a long, translucent finish. James Halliday

The new packaging emanates from a Paris designer, and has been adopted across the Billecart range. It is a classic example of label change which gives brand managers a bad name. However the wine in the bottle is as good as ever, with perfect balance and poise, offering a seamless mix of ripe apple, brioche and a subliminal hint of honey, followed by a lingering finish.
