xxx | 7 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) T The Cuvee Nicolas Francois is a blend of Grand Crus with Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from the m ontagne de Reims. It's aged partially in wood, adding a generous elegance to the wine, yet there's a precision and minerality here that contrasts it wonderfully. There are only a handful of must-have Champagnes from the 2002 vintage, and the Cuvee Nicolas Francois is without a doubt one of them. This late-release Champagne, from an o ctober 2015 disgorgement, has been thrilling us since the first taste. It should not be missed. ✦ Billecart Salmon Brut Cuvee Nicolas Francois 2002 JS 98 » $185 "... Deep-set complexity… smooth phenolics that hold through to the finish… Great balance and power." James Suckling (1801070) Be YON d Sa LMON R OS É Most people associate Billecart-Salmon only with Rose, but as we've come to know, this historic house is about so much more. Billecart-Salmon is the oldest continuously family- owned house in Champagne, with a style that looks more to freshness and balanced acidity than anything else.
