Champagne Boizel Cuvée Sous Bois 1990


Free Delivery with Orders over £95

Champagne Boizel Cuvee Sous Bois 1990 is initially light on the bouquet, where woody notes are soon overtaken by intense aromas of white flowers, baked fruits, roasted almonds and sweet spice notes of cinnamon and vanilla, all against a surprisingly fresh background. In the mouth the wine is superbly complex with a striking structure and an airy balance between freshness and power. The rich, aromatic palate displays notes of red berries and dried apricots. The finish is elegant and exceptionally long lasting.

This cuvée is blended from three Côte Des Blancs Chardonnay crus (Chouilly, Vertus, Cramant), three Montagne De Reims Pinots Noirs crus (Aÿ, Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ, Mailly), and Pinot Meunier from Chigny-Les-Roses. Following early 20th century methods, vinification took place in old Champagne and Burgundy oak barrels to rediscover the rich character of these historic wines. The still wines spent nine months in cask before being blended and bottled in July 1991, giving rise to both the character and the name of the finished Champagne.
