I recently was invited by Helena Nicklin to join her in a champagne tasting of Billecart-Salmon’s NV Extra Brut and their 2004 Vintage champagnes. The intriguing difference in this tasting was that we would be using Billecart-Salmon’s specially designed wine glasses and compared the champagnes in both a traditional flute and Billecart’s specially designed glasses. Helena did a very good job of describing the technical notes on the tasting which you can find here.

We also did a video tasting of the two different champagnes, see the videos below…

  1. Will have to keep an eye out for these two wines. I am quite fond of the NV and always drink my bubbles out of white wine glasses. As you said the wine is a lot more expressive than when drunk from a flute, and you want the maximum enjoyment you can get!
