BILLECART-SALMON SOUS BOIS BRUT & DECANTER GIFT SET


Winemaker Notes:

A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous bead of persistent fine bubbles. There is an olfactory impact due to the richness of harmonious expressions (dry fruits, fresh citrus, and white fruits) coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. A defined aromatic undertone which expresses the mature complexity linked to the vinification in oak barrels.

The caressing and refreshing texture enhance the creamy sensation, dominated by a beautiful bracing vivacity. A burst of flavours (notes of grilled brioche, toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity which is a mark of the great wines of Champagne.

Critical Acclaim:

95 points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"COMMENTARY: The Billecart-Salmon Sous Bois is one of the best non-vintage Bruts in the marketplace. TASTING NOTES: This Champagne is rich and racy. Its lively aromas and flavors of mineral notes and bright stone fruits should pair superbly with oven-roast chicken over a mix of arugula and kale."

95 points - Australian Wine Companion
"The complex bouquet reflects the primary fermentation in oak casks; the palate no less so thanks to the quality of the premier and grand cru reserves, also matured in oak. But it's all a question of degree; there's a core of citrussy acidity underwriting the freshness and length of the wine."

94 points - Wine Spectator "A finely honed, mouthwatering Champagne, featuring a minerally underpinning of saline and chalk accents. Lacy in texture, offering wild cherry and pear fruit flavors, with toast point, lime blossom and lemon pastry cream notes."

94 points - James Suckling
"A dense 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 for a meal. One third of pinot meunier, pinot noir and chardonnay. Fermented and aged in barrel for about six months. It's aged six years on lees. Drink or hold."

92 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Sous Bois is excellent, unwinding in the glass with notes of lemon oil, crisp stone fruit, buttery pastry and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly vinous, with chalky phenolic structure and an enlivening pillowy mousse, it's impressively deep and concentrated, with fine tension and grip. Early renditions of this cuvťe tended to be at their best on release, but this impressive effort appears to be built to age. Rating : 92+
