"Attractive and complex nose of salted almonds, apricots, figs, raspberries and white chocolate. Tangy green apples, too. Fine bubbles here, with vibrant acidity and sleek, integrated layers. Dry and rich yet all in balance. Equal parts chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier, with about 30% reserve wines. Aged six years on lees. Drink now."

"Disgorged in the second quarter of 2022 with a dosage of 4.9 grams per liter, Billecart-Salmon’s NV Brut Sous Bois emerges from the glass with aromas of orchard fruit, pear, peach, nuts and spring flowers. It's medium to full-bodied, clean and pure, with tangy acids and pastry notes on the finish. Elegant, linear and fruit-driven, this Champagne can be enjoyed right now or cellared for another year or two. Base vintage: 2015 (60% of the blend and vinified in old barrels) with 40% of vins de réserve, the earliest vintage of which is 2006. It comprises 30% Pinot Noir sourced from Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, 40% Chardonnay from Côtes de Blancs grands crus and 30% Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne."
