BILLECART-SALMON BRUT SOUS BOIS NV
Captivating and Original
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.
|GRAPES:||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier in equal proportion|
|APPEARANCE:||A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous stream of persistent, fine bubbles|
|AROMA:||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|
|PALATE:||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|
|FOOD PAIRING:||Its strength of character and integrity make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry dishes or Girolle mushrooms|
Aromas of almond paste, green orchard fruit, citrus oil and pastry cream introduce the latest example of Billecart's NV Brut Sous Bois, a bottling that's based on the 2009 vintage. The oak influence is much less pronounced than was the case with some of the early renditions of this cuvée, and it's really going from strength to strength, revealing a medium to full-bodied palate that's broad-shoulder and structured, with lively underpinning acids.
