The estate

Champagne Billecart-Salmon was first and foremost the result of a union. A union between Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon who, in 1818 and just married, founded their own Champagne House in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, a small village near Epernay. At their side was Louis Salmon, Elisabeth’s brother and a passionate oenologist who, from the very beginning, dedicated himself to the development of the wines. For seven generations, their descendants have dedicated themselves to quality. They have been the committed guardians through the centuries of exacting standards and a passion renewed - for the vine, the terroir and the art of winemaking. Today, Mathieu Roland-Billecart, the 7th generation of the family, heads the House with Antoine, Deputy General Manager in charge of export, with the support of Jean and François Roland-Billecart.

The vineyard

From the Côte des Blancs to the Montagne de Reims, the grands crus grow under the Champenois sunshine. Here the vines are tended to day by day, blossoming slowly to the sounds of natures rhythm. The champagnes of Maison Billecart-Salmon are above all created thanks to the knowledge of the men who rigorously cultivate an estate of 100 hectares, obtaining grapes from an area totalling 300 hectares across 40 crus of the Champagne region. The majority of the grapes used for vinification come from a radius of 20km around Epernay, where the Grand Crus of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay co-exist, in the ethereal vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. Annexed to the estate, is the Clos Saint-Hilaire, a vineyard consisting of one hectare of Pinot Noir, named after the patron Saint of the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Champagne Billecart-Salmon is certified « High Environmental Value » and « Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne » in 2017. The house also has 10 hectares of in organic conversion.

The Cuvée

This unique cuvée, which is entirely vinified in oak, is composed of the three Champenois grape varieties. It totally masters the art of blending by renewing the ancestral spirit and savoir-faire of the original champagnes. The Brut Sous Bois offers a complex aromatic definition and a character linked to vinification in oak casks. Its strength of character and integrity make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry dishes or Girolle mushrooms.

Tasting Notes

Eye, bouquet, palate

A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous stream of persistent, fine bubbles. There is a rich olfactory impact which is harmoniously expressed (dried fruits, fresh citrus and white flesh fruits) and coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. A burst of flavours (notes of grilled brioche and toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity which is a mark of any great wine of Champagne.
