The 2009 Champagne Blanc De Blancs Louis Salmon Brut comes from Mesnil Cramant and Chouilly and was all fermented in stainless steel tank. Since 2009 was a warmer vintage they did not use wood as they were looking to preserve the freshness of the wine. A seductive wine that?s almost identical in appearance to the 2017 Blanc de Blancs this 2009 jumps from the glass with a buoyant personality in its perfume of lemon custard honeysuckle fresh brioche a hint of almond and juicy pear. Full-bodied its wonderfully rich texture coats the palate with citrus oils and it has a finish that won?t quit. It balances its warmth and solar feel with a lovely embrace and retains a powerful yet balanced finish. Drink 2024-2040.

The 2009 Brut Blanc de Blancs Louis Salmon is a rich, heady wine. In 2009, Billecart-Salmon opted not to use lots aged in oak, which, along with partially blocked malolactic fermentation, helps explain the wine's freshness and verve.  Lemon peel, white flowers, white pepper, and chalk are all beautifully delineated. There's gorgeous density and power here, along with a good bit of vintage 2009 radiance. What a gorgeous Champagne this is. The Louis Salmon is a blend from Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly and Cramant. Dosage is 3.75 grams per liter. Disgorged: second trimester 2022.

95 points Robert Parker

Disgorged during the second quarter of 2022 with a dosage of 3.75 grams per liter, the 2009 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis Salmon reveals aromas of pear, lemon oil, mandarin oil, white pepper, pastry and almonds. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and long, it has a crystalline yet vinous texture with a fresh, salty finish. It is a quintessential representation of Billecart's style, characterized by racy acids and a lively palate. It derives from Chardonnay grapes sourced from the villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly and Cramant and was aged exclusively in steel tanks. - Yohan Castaing
