Disgorged with two grams per liter dosage Billecart-Salmon's 2009 Extra Brut Vintage is more giving and demonstrative than its 2008 counterpart offering up inviting aromas of crisp stone fruit yellow apple brioche honeycomb and warm pastry. Medium to full-bodied fleshy and enveloping with a pillowy mousse and a generous core of fruit girdled by bright acids it's seamless and complete. Indeed such is its charm and persistence that I tend to prefer it at least for now to the 2008.

The 2009 Vintage is another stellar wine in this range from Billecart-Salmon. This is the first time the Vintage includes Meunier in the blend. That approach has worked out so well here. Resonant and generous, the 2009 is so expressive today. The low dosage of two grams per liter is expertly judged. The 2009 is rich, but not heavy, while offering all of the natural generosity of the year.

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a little Pinot Meunier.
