    Description

    It couldn’t be better named ! The Brut Sous Bois from the house of Billecart-Salmon is an oak aged champagne of great character, which can accompany a dinner party from beginning to end.

    Made from the three principal grape varieties of Champagne, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, and entirely vinified in oak barrels, this cuvee demonstrates personality and expressivity.

    A temperament which first shows itself in the deeply colored robe of great luminosity constellated with fine, regular bubbles. Its aromas are intense, concentrated and rich, evocative of dried fruits, citrus and white fruits evolving to more smooth complex notes resulting from the barrel ageing, and finally traces of vanilla.

    In the mouth the texture of the Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois is beautifully elegant, silky and smooth.

    The sensation of freshness and power intermingle harmoniously, with lightly grilled notes characteristic of great oak aged champagnes leading to soft spices and toasted undertones on the final of exceptional length. Sensational!

    A magnificent cuvee, made for all types of cuisine, and, for the connoisseur, can be appreciated as an aperitif.
