Billecart Salmon Clos Saint Hilaire 1999
Billecart's 1999 Le Clos Saint-Hilaire is exotic and beguiling. Constantly changing in the glass, 1999 offers exquisite aromatics, silky, and a real sense of underlying phenolic structure. Crushed rose petals, licorice, smoke, game, and tobacco add nuance as the wine opens up. With time in the glass, the personality of these Pinot vines becomes more and more expressive. 1999 was bottled with no dosage, but that would be impossible to ascertain in a blind tasting. Drink 2016-2024.
