Billecart Salmon Champagne
Billecart-Salmon Champagne is available at The Champagne Company; the House of Billecart-Salmon is located in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Champagne, France and has belonged to the same family since 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, marking the creation of their Champagne House. This has been a family story since the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist.
Over 7 generations, each member of the family has endeavoured to continue the family tradition, staying faithful to the same motto: "Give priority to quality, strive for excellence".
Two brothers from the sixth generation, Antoine and François Roland-Billecart today run Billecart-Salmon which is renowned for the elegance, finesse and freshness of its Champagnes. François Domi has been cellar master for nearly 30 years.
Their flagship Champagne is the rosé containing 40% Chardonnay. Among popular Billecart-Salmon Champagne bottles, find Billecart-Salmon Demi Sec, Billecart Salmon Brut Rosé NV Champagne and Billecart-Salmon Sous Bois.
LE CLOS SAINT HILAIRE
After several years of painstakingly tending the vines, the 1995 harvest, the first year of this unique cuvée, was remarkable. We called it Le Clos Saint-Hilaire after the patron saint of the church in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. No more than 3,500 to 7,500 bottles are produced each year and each is individually numbered.'
