Champagne Billecart-Salmon

Billecart-Salmon, a medium-size Champagne House in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, was founded in 1818 by the original owners Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon who combined their names on marriage to create the brand. It is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to remain family owned. Billecart-Salmon is renowned for the quality of its delicate Brut Rose, whilst the Brut Reserve (a blend of three vintages) is a beautifully harmonious and balanced wine. All have the ability to age very well.

Tasting Notes

A classic, complex nose of toasted brioche, hazelnuts and nougat - richness and breadth of flavours abound. Mature and showing well.

Food Matches

A perfect pairing with seafood, caviar and roast chicken to name but a few. Our favourite is smoked salmon Blini's - easy on the horseradish!
