Boizel

This is a family-run Maison located in Epernay since 1834, that is five generations of prosperity, exacting standards, generosity, loyalty, with an umbrella of a certain taste for freedom.

However, their success was to suffer the consequences of the SecWorld War II, the owners at the time took over, innovated, exported, and ultimately saved the family business, notably with an investment fund's acquisition of a stake in 1994.

The Boizel-Chanoine Champagne group came into being with the merger of the Champagnes Chanoine, before becoming Lanson-BBC in 2010.

Description Boizel Cuvée Sous Bois 2008.

What a great vintage!

A year marked by cold weather in Champagne, where it was not until late April that no more negative temperatures were recorded.

May, June and August were cool and rainy, leaving doubts about the quality and quantity of the future harvest.

The 2 sunny, warm and dry weeks of mid-July and early September (just before the harvest) will ensure full ripeness and impeccable harvest quality.

Once again the great winemakers have risen to nature's challenge to make 2008 a very great vintage.

This cuvée, created in 1990, is made from village wines classified as Grand Cru, Bouzy and Verzenay de La Montagne de Reims for Pinot Noir (75%), and Chouilly and Avize de La Côte des blancs for Chardonnay (25%).

As the name suggests, the vinification is carried out using traditional methods, in old Champagne and Burgundy barrels, to recreate the characteristics of the Champagnes of yesteryear.

The wines spend 9 months in these barrels. This is followed by 10 years' ageing on laths, then a light dosage of 3g/L after disgorgement.

The nose immediately offers notes of ageing, woody, with toasted almonds, cinnamon and vanilla.

A background of yellow fruit and white flowers brings a surprising freshness.

The powerful palate reveals the Pinot Noir dominance with its myriad of red and stone fruits.

The elegance is remarkable and the airy finish is exceptionally long.

Its strength and straightforwardness make it the ideal companion for a pan-fried chanterelle mushroom.

It's a wine of great elegance and elegance
