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.

‘‘Give priority to quality, strive for excellence’’

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 Vintage

This wine, with an extra brut dosage, is dominated by great Pinot Noir flavours which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and that signature touch of Meunier. An ideal blend allowing the personality of the Champagne region’s great Pinot Noirs to dominate, combined with the elegance and subtlety of Chardonnays and that signature touch of Meunier.

Tasting Notes

Eye, bouquet, palate

Pale gold in colour, with glinting flecks of soft yellow and a natural light sparkle. Deliciously fruity intensity with elegant notes of nuts and stone fruits (fresh hazelnuts, pomelo flesh). Prolonged and nuanced development of exquisite notes of baked goods (raw butter, lemon cream). A superlative aroma, with a refreshing and sophisticated purity. A charming mouthfeel with a delightful tension and notes of blueberries and cherry clafoutis, intensified by the delicate, creamy texture of a slow second fermentation. The wine rises to a distinguished complexity and enjoys a lingering, delicately structured finish.
