Wine Information

Captivating and Original

Composition: This unique cuvée, entirely vinified in oak, is respectfully 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 bead of persistent fine bubbles.

Aroma: 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.

Palate: The caressing and refreshing texture enhances 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.

Serving: A reference for pleasure and emotion because of its remarkable finesse. Its strength of character and honesty make an ideal accompaniment to seafood and poultry. This wine is ideally served at cellar temperature 10°.

From François DOMI, BILLECART-SALMON’ chief winemaker.

Written Notes

Mixed reactions in the room on this barrel-aged wine. Personally I found the oak well integrated and adding a special complexity to the wine.
