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.

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.

The majority of the grapes used for vinification come from a radius of 20km around Epernay, where the Grand Crus of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay co-exist, in the ethereal vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.

 Everything about this wine is distinctive. It’s a champagne that seduces. It’s made from the three champenois grape varieties in equal proportions and is vinified in oak, which bestows upon it a beautiful balance and a great elegance between the finesse of the bubbles and the strength of its character. The Brut Sous Bois cuvée can be paired with very different dishes, which includes langoustines, white meats or a slowly cooked veal shank covered with thin strips of ceps. This champagne is the guarantee of a terrific marriage between the character and the finesse. Personally, I pair the cuisine with the wine to allow it to express itself. Crustaceans, either cooked or uncooked, just cooked cockles or even a mussel risotto, cuttlefish and a saffron flavoured broth unveil the full potential of this cuvée. For me the Brut Sous Bois is like an epicurean tale which is to be enjoyed at the end of the afternoon, on the terrace at Apicius for example, or even with a good cigar. I always associate this champagne with an absolute moment of pleasure or a moment of happiness, both precious and precise. 

Tasting notes

The Brut Sous Bois offers a complex aromatic definition and a character linked to vinification in oak casks.

APPEARANCE
A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous stream of persistent, fine bubbles.
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.
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.

TASTING

Its strength of character and integrity make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry dishes or Girolle mushrooms.

Serve at: 10°C.
