I’m starting off Christmas Day with Billecart-Salmon brut blanc de blanc

Dec 19, 13 I’m starting off Christmas Day with Billecart-Salmon brut blanc de blanc

It’s almost time to break out the bubbly for Christmas morning. I don’t know about you but I always like to start off with a glass of champagne on the big day. Actually, I think champagne any day is a good idea but on Christmas Day, you can get more people to drink with you in the morning as it seems to be an anything goes kind of day.

This year, I have a plethora of champagnes to choose from but I’ll probably go with a nice glass of Billecart Salmon brut blanc de blanc to start. I love blanc de blancs because they are so refreshing. Billecart’s brut b de b is no exception, having a delicacy and elegance that comes from the 100% chardonnay grapes used in the champagne.

I visited the house of Billecart Salmon earlier this year and got a behind the scenes look at how they make their champagne. We also got to taste older vintages of their range, including some blanc de blancs and it was a delightful and tasty experience. I do enjoy trying older vintages but on Christmas morning, it’s probably best to stick with something crisp and delicate which you can only really get with a good champagne.

Billecart-Salmon brut blanc de blanc is available at Selfridges, Berry Bros. & Rudd and other fine wine merchants.
