Cuvée Sous Bois 2009 - Champagne Boizel - Epernay France
  • 40% Pinot noir
  • 60% Chardonnay

Aged 13 years on lees
Dosage: 4g per litre


Cuvée Sous Bois 2009 is made with grapes from Grands and Premiers Crus : Chardonnay from Chouilly, Vertus and Bisseuil in the Côte des Blancs, Pinot Noir from Mailly and Tours-sur-Marne in the Montagne de Reims.
The wine is vinified exclusively in old barrels, Champagne and Burgundy: the wines are kept in these barrels for 9 months after the harvest, until they are bottled in July.


A luminous, deep gold colour, with fine columns of persistent bubbles. On the nose, initial woody notes give way to intense aromas of white blossom, cooked fruit, and grilled almonds with hints of spice (cinnamon, vanilla). The backbone is remarkably fresh. The palate offers superb, complex body, lightly balanced between freshness and power. The rich aromatic range is intensified with notes of red fruit. It displays remarkable vinosity and elegance. The finish is exceptionally long.
