Tasting Notes

'Sous Bois'-being French for 'under wood' - is a nod back to the traditional past of Champagne when wines were fermented and aged in oak barrels. This method adds texture, weight and character to the wine and imparts a smoky, toastiness on the finish. This is their first release which is predominately from the 2006 vintage with reserves from 2005 and 2004. Fermented entirely in oak, left in barrel for a period of six months with occasional lees stirring. Malolactic has been completely blocked with a dosage of 6gm/litre. Impressive debut"Rich and pinoty with smoky charcuterie, spice and almond aromas, some strawberry on palate. Soft and round; a magic wine. Food: Smoked salmon with capers."Huon Hooke, March 2012
