Get in now on this allocation of Champagne Charles le Bel NV Brut' Inspiration 1818' by Billecart-Salmon from only $89.99 per bottle.

We are thrilled to announce that we have been granted a limited allocation of the small release Champagne Billecart-Salmon Cuvee Inspiration 1818 NV, and we can't wait to introduce you to this gem.

Every year, legendary Grande Marque Champagne Billecart-Salmon vinifies base wines from more parcels than it actually needs for the production of its main cuvées. Some of the wines are bottled to be part of their secondary wine, Charles Le Bel, often served in Parisian bistros and First Class airlines in France – it's Billecart quality at a very approachable price.

It's a delicious classic champagne with fine, crystalline bubbles and golden yellow light. Impressive nose, with aromas of brioche, almonds, butter, apple, and pear. A beautiful stroke, mineral, a perfect balance between acidity and roundness, citrus fruits, and a long finish.

Blend:
Chardonnay 37%
Pinot Meunier 30%
Pinot Noir 33%
Reserve wine 70%

Stop reaching for more familiar Champagne names, do your wallet a favour and dive into something "smaller"—you never know what a hidden gem you may find with Champagne Charles Le Bel' Inspiration 1818'.

“Clear pale lemon in colour with medium plus intensity and notes of Brioche, bread dough, melon, apple, orange zest and lemon peel. This wine is dry with high acid, low alcohol, medium plus body and a medium finish.”
– Max Sheets, most upvoted review

“Lots of citrus notes. Lime, lemon, pear and apple. A bit of brioche in the finish. For the price. Fantastic. Stand up next to bottles more than double the price.”

“Quite outstanding. Loved it a lot. Amazing mix of yellow apples, apricot, baked apples. Some brioche too. Hints of citrus, very very subtle.”

“Really light Champagne. Great flavour and small light bubbles that are super refreshing. Comes from the Billecart-Salmon house. For half the price as well.”
