Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois With Decanter
(Gift set includes one 750ml Brut Sois Bois bottle & one etched decanter)
This unique cuvée, which is entirely vinified in oak, is composed of the three Champenois grape varieties. It totally masters the art of blending by renewing the ancestral spirit and savoir-faire of the original champagnes. A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous stream of persistent, fine bubbles. There is a rich olfactory impact which is harmoniously expressed (dried fruits, fresh citrus and white flesh fruits) and coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. A burst of flavours (notes of grilled brioche and toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity which is a mark of any great wine of Champagne. Its strength of character and integrity make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry dishes or Girolle mushrooms.
“A rich Champagne with a tight and linear structure. Compressed and very pretty. Hints of nuts and cream with some pie crust. Some nougat, too. Very long and flavorful. It’s one to pair with a meal. Made of a third each of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Fermented and aged in barrel for about six months. Disgorged July 19, 2020. It’s aged six years on lees. Ready to enjoy now or will age well.”
