This cuvee is a blend of two different years revealing the special quality of the Chardonnay. Its complexity, its great vinosity and the surprisingly fresh finish is appreciated by all wine lovers.

Founded in 1818 by Nicolas Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon, the estate is now managed by the seventh generation of the family to do so, brothers François and Antoine Roland-Billecart. The house operates on the philosophy that an early harvest yields more elegant, delicate Champagnes and continues to produce in this structure-driven style that has made them one of the most iconic champagnes of our time.

When the time comes to blend the cuvees, every morning at the cave of Maison Billecart-Salmon a team of family members and employees assemble for a blind tasting. Each wine is analyzed, voted on, and then assigned to an appropriate cuvée.

This painstaking process (tasting vin clair is no picnic) is done with every single wine in the cellar, multiple times over. It guarantees exceptional quality, consistent style, and ensures Billecart remains one of Champagne's greatest houses. In top vintages all that hard work ensures that the Vintage wine is a perfect reflection of everything that year has to offer.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 92
"Based on the 2014 vintage, supplemented by some 30% of reserve wines, Billecart's newly released NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru offers up a classic bouquet of freshly baked bread, crisp orchard fruit, citrus oil and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit, racy acids and a pinpoint mousse, it's as bright and precise as ever." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Rapierlike acidity defines this lip-smacking version, with rich notes of grilled nut, melon and apricot fruit, grated ginger and lemon curd gaining momentum. It's sleek and racy, with a lively mousse and a long, mineral-tinged finish."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 93
"Produced from the grapes grown in the Côte des Blancs, this beautiful Champagne is crisp and mineral, with a great texture and acidity. It has elegance and style as well."
