Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois
ChampFamily run since the 19th century, the Billecart Champagne house delivers large number of bottles which are always well made and of the highest quality. The champagnes of Maison Billecart-Salmon are above all created thanks to the knowledge of the men who rigorously cultivate an estate of 100 hectares, obtaining grapes from an area totalling 300 hectares across 40 crus of the Champagne region.
This unique cuvée, which is entirely vinified in oak, is composed of the three Champenois grape varieties in equal proportions. Premier and Grand Cru Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, Premier and Grand Cru Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims, Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Pinot Meunier from the right bank of the Vallée de la Marne. It totally masters the art of blending by renewing the ancestral spirit and savoir-faire of the original champagnes.
Flavors of baked pineapple, chopped black cherry, grilled nut and pickled ginger expand on the palate of this expressive Champagne backed by a firm spine of integrated acidity. Fine like raw silk on the palate, and the lightly mouthwatering finish carries accents of lime blossom, chalk and oyster shell. - Wine Spectator, November 2021, 93 Points
