Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois / NV / 750mL
Category: Sparkling
Sub-Category: Champagne

Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Sous Bois offers a complex aromatic definition and a character linked to vinification in oak casks.

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.

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.

Tasting:

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