Every year, Billecart-Salmon vinifies base wines from a greater number of parcels than it needs to produce its main cuvees. The tasting Committee assesses each of these base wines and selects only the ones that match the standard and the style of Billecart-Salmon. Some of the wines that are not selected are bottled to be part of a second wine from the House, Inspiration 1818. The cuvee blend is composed of Chardonnay 37%, Pinot Meunier 30%, Pinot Noir 33%. The final wine is composed of 70% Reserve wine, with a 9g/l Dosage.
Sparkling and crystalline appearance with fine and plentiful bubbles. A blooming nose with harmonious notes of butter, white flesh fruits as well as Mirabelle plums and dried fruits. Well-balanced on the palate, structured thanks to the greatness of the Pinots Noirs, with flavors of white flesh fruits. The Chardonnay brings to this wine a refreshing finish with notes of citrus fruits and pepper.
