Billecart releases magnums of ‘Brut Sous Bois’ cuvée

Champagne producer Billecart-Salmon has released 500 magnums of its wood-aged cuvée ‘Brut Sous Bois’.

The wine was vinified in old oak barrels before being consigned to bottle for secondary fermentation and, completing the woody theme, the bottle itself has a label made of cherry wood – sourced from sustainable forests.

Priced at £180 per magnum, just 500 bottles will be available worldwide from independent wine merchants.

The magnum also comes with two suggested recipes to pair the Champagne with. The first, from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, is roast turbot with a coconut-lime infusion, herbs and fennel.

The second, by chef Pierre Hermé, is a pudding of shortbread, mascarpone and chocolate.
