James Suckling "..This is superb! Drink now....Some wood elevage adds light, cedary notes to the brioche, spiced-berry and apple-pastry aromas The palate has a smooth, full and focused feel with lemon-peel and white-cherry flavors in a crisp, assertive and fresh mode. Poached strawberries to close. "

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. "

Wine Enthusiast "Equal proportions of the three main Champagne grapes and partial aging in wood before bottling give this wine a distinctively rich character. Bottle aging has also softened the concentrated white fruits and acidity. This balanced wine is ready to drink."

John Gilman - "The new release of Sous Bois from Billecart is another beautifully made wine, wafting from the glass in a mélange of apple, pear, fresh-baked bread, stony minerality and a touch of gently buttery new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, excellent soil signature, very refined mousse, crisp acids and superb length and grip on the gently woody finish. This seems a touch more marked by its oak than last year’s version did- but, I did taste last year’s release about four months later into the year, so perhaps it was just a function of the wine having a bit more time to better absorb its oak component. This is not overtly woody, but I would give it a bit of time in the cellar to allow the oak to become more subtle in its influence. It is a very well-made wine."

Vinous - "Bright yellow. Pungent orchard fruit and lemon curd scents are complemented by suggestions of vanilla, anise and smoky minerals. Toasty and silky in texture, offering juicy pear and tangerine flavors plus a deeper suggestion of candied fig on the back half. Closes sappy, focused and long, with repeating smokiness and strong mineral cut."

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - "Light, bright gold. Smoky pear and redcurrant scents are complicated by toasty lees, vanilla and fresh rose. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering toasty citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are given lift and spine by juicy acidity. The toasty note comes back on the mineral-tinged finish, which lingers with impressive tenacity. "

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Full-bodied and rich, this is a very intense and well-structured, pure and vinous champagne clearly driven by the two Pinot varieties in terms of fruit and body. The Chardonnay, however, contributes freshness, finesse and a long, citrus-fresh and tightly structured finish....Fermented in small oak barrels and aged for six to seven years on the bottle lees prior the disgorgement (dosage: seven grams per liter), the NV Brut Sous Bois is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay in equal parts whose composition includes 67% of the 2009 harvest and 33% reserve wines from the 2008 harvest. The nose is spicy, pure and fresh, delivering small red berry, white fruit and floral as well as nicely fresh oak flavors to the ripe and well-concentrated nose. "

Decanter - "This is produced from an equal blend of the three classic Champagne grape varieties: Pinot Noir sourced from the Montagne de Reims sector and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs (both from premier cru and grand cru villages), plus Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley. It has delicate notes of hazelnut and white fruit as well as a hint of pastry, showing lots of personality on the palate and a pleasing lightness on the finish."

Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100 percent control of production.

Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier. With effervescent flavors of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.

The Champagne region is located 140 kilometres from Paris, France. While the vines in this region have been producing wine since the Roman era, it is only in the past couple of hundred years that winemakers began producing Champagne using méthode champenoise - the complex method that produces the style of Champagne the world knows and loves today. Another important component of the production of champagne is the chalk and limestone soils which dominate the Champagne region. Vines grown in these conditions result in wines that are high in acidity - a key component to making good sparkling wine. Champagne's northerly location - about as north as grapes can ripen - also allow for higher acidity and lower alcohol levels which are also very important for producing quality sparkling wine.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous "The NV Blanc de Blancs (from vineyards in the Cote des Blancs) emerges with firm, chalky notes that frame a highly individualistic expression of Chardonnay. The wine possesses striking depth and clarity, along with a graceful, elegant finish. This is another very strong effort from Billecart-Salmon."

Gilbert & Gaillard "Light yellow with slightly greenish tints. After swirling, the nose deploys notes of fresh croissant over a background of white flowers and hazelnut. A full-bodied, well-structured blanc de blancs, driven by power and some heat. Quite massive."

Essi Avellan MW "A delicate, fruity blanc de blancs with a straightforward floral-lemony-mineral character and stylish toasty edge. A classic mix from the celebrated Grand Cru villages of Chouilly, Cramant, Oger and Le Mesnil aged on the lees for five years with 35 percent reserve wines bringing even further richness. Beautifully creamy, energetic mousse and a fresh, long, fruity length.”

James Suckling "one of my favorite rosé Champagnes out there. I love the freshness and clarity in the wine, from its light pink color to crisp acidity and minerally, chalky character on the finish. It's full-bodied and dense yet agile with amazing length and beauty. Refreshing and vibrant. As it warms, it gives you delicate pinot noir character like Aloxe-Corton or another excellent appellation."

Gilbert & Gaillard "Beautiful salmon-pink hue. Extremely pure nose blending ripe red fruit and notes of blood orange. Simultaneously mouth-filling and ethereal. Long-lasting freshness enhances clearly-delineated aromas. Superbly classic style suitable for any occasion."

Richard Hemming "Lovely stately strawberry fruit, baked apples, brioche and spice. Invigorating acidity, beautifully soft fizz, very gentle and elegant persistence. "

Wine Advocate "The NV Brut Rose is a pretty, gracious wine. Freshly cut roses, red berries and spices take shape nicely in the glass as the wine shows off its understated, timeless personality. Billecart-Salmon’s NV Brut Rose is a reliably tasty wine."
