Das Weingut Henri Billiot aus Ambonnay ist 5 Hektar groß und besteht aus 100% Grand Cru Lagen. Die Champagner die dort produziert werden sind zumeist deutlich vom Pinot Noir geprägt und bestechen durch ihre außerordentlich präzise Art und beeindruckende Tiefe. Qualitativ ebenbürtig mit anderen großen Namen desselben Ortes (z.B. Egly-Ouriet), aber stilistisch ganz anders. Sie durchlaufen keine malolaktische Gärung, werden nicht gefiltert und werden mit etw 7 bis 9 gr/L Dosage versetzt. Das Ergebnis sind umwerfend eigenständige Champagner mit großer Länge und enormer Lagerfähigkeit. Bereits der Brut Réserve gibt einen wunderbaren Einblick in die Stilistik des Hauses. Der beste Champagner des Hauses ist ohne Zweifel die Cuvée Laetitia, benannt nach Laetita Billiot, die in der Zwischenzeit die Geschicke des Gutes maßgeblich leitet.

The flagship Multi Vintage Brut Cuvee Laetitia comes across as delicate and floral in this version. Pears, white peaches, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that are woven into a fabric of notable class. Layers of sweet perfumed fruit run through the understated finish. The flagship Cuvee Laetitia is a blend of vintages going back to 1983. My sense is that there is a fair amount of younger vintages here given the brightness of the wine.

Bright yellow. A wild, pungent bouquet evokes dried pear, beeswax, anise and iodine, with floral and spice notes gaining strength with air.  Juicy, penetrating orchard fruit and orange marmalade flavors show impressive depth and power and are given spine by tangy minerality.  Very rich and complex but lively Champagne with serious finishing thrust and lingering spiciness.

Tasting note: This is remarkably fresh for it to have such a large proportion of aged stock in it and while the nose is mature, there are absolutely no oxidative elements in it. In fact, I deliberately revisited this 24 hours after first opening it to see how the nose had evolved and I can report that there was very little discernable evolution. As I say, while fully mature, the mildly yeasty nose displays notes of baked apple, roasted nut and a dried rose petal nuance that also characterizes the rich, full and utterly delicious flavors that are also fresh and vibrant with plenty of energy and finishing punch. Often Champagnes with high percentages of reserves in them lack the same effervescence but that is certainly not the case here. This is a lovely effort that could be drunk now with pleasure or held for years to come.
