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
"The latest release of Billecart's NV Brut Sous Bois offers up aromas of green apple, pear and dried fruits framed by a classy patina of buttery pastry and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and nicely concentrated, it's generous and textural, with fine-boned structure, racy acids and a delicate mousse. As usual, this is a blend of equal parts Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, made with vins clairs fermented at low temperature in used oak barrels." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"A finely honed, mouthwatering Champagne, featuring a minerally underpinning of saline and chalk accents. Lacy in texture, offering wild cherry and pear fruit flavors, with toast point, lime blossom and lemon pastry cream notes."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Fermented and aged briefly in wood, this is dry, intense and toasty while still giving space for white fruits and some citrus. Richly endowed, spicy, and tangy, its structure and tight texture mark it out as a Champagne for long-term aging. The aftertaste is brisk, packed with acidity and with reminiscences of the oak-aging in the vanilla finish. Drink this bottling from 2018."
